NEW EIT/LST Tax Collector for Schuylkill Township in 2011

The Chester Tax Collection Committee (CTCC) recently appointed Keystone Collections Group to serve as the Earned Income Tax (EIT) and Local Services Tax (LST) collector for school and municipal taxing authorities within Chester County. This important change was brought about under Act 32 of 2008. Act 32 requires municipal governments and school districts in all Pennsylvania counties, except Philadelphia, to select a single tax collector to serve the Earned Income Tax collection needs of the political subdivisions within the county. Keystone will officially start EIT and LST collections for the CTCD effective January 1, 2011. This means that Keystone will be responsible for processing payments for the 4th quarter of 2010, as well as the 2010 final earned income tax returns due April 15, 2011. In the next few weeks, individuals and employers will receive detailed instructions and contact information from Keystone to help answer questions and provide taxpayer assistance.
