Local Services Tax

The Local Services Tax (formerly called OPT or EMS Tax) is an Act 222 tax. All persons working in the Township will be required to pay $52 annually. Employers will deduct this tax from employees at a pro rata share of the tax by dividing the tax by the number of payroll period established by the employer for the calendar year. If eligible, persons earning less than $12,000 may request an exemption from the local services tax through their payroll departments.
