"We are pleased to announce that starting with the 2012 tax year,
the Local Earned Income Tax in our community will be collected and
administered by Berkheimer Tax Administrator. This change is the
result of state legislation (ACT 32), that required the
consolidation of the collection of Local Earned Income to a county
"Tax Collection District." The tax rate and all filing dates will
remain the same, this is a change in the collector only. However,
there are changes in the employer withholding requirements. Please
visit the Berkheimer website for more details (www.hab-inc.com).
We encourage you to take advantage of the fast and easy e-filing for
individuals and employers, offered by Berkheimer"
