Act 32 - Earned Income Tax
DAUPHIN COUNTY TAX COLLECTION COMMITTEE
Vice Chairman: Jay Wenger

Under amendments (Act 32) which the Pennsylvania General Assembly made in 2008 to the Local Tax Enabling Act, the County of Dauphin has been established as an official tax collection district (TCD) for purposes of collecting income taxes. The TCD is not an office, department or agency of county government; instead, it is a new legal entity with statutorily defined duties and powers.
Among other matters, the Dauphin County Tax Collection Committee has the duty to appoint and oversee a tax officer for the collection of the tax on earned income and net profits. The TCC has appointed as tax officer the Keystone Collections Group (Keystone) of Irwin, Pennsylvania. Commencing January 1, 2012, Keystone will collect all earned income tax imposed by the taxing authorities, or other political subdivisions, on TCD residents or on nonresidents working within the TCD. All other local tax collections - Local Services Tax, Business Privilege/Mercantile Tax, Per Capita Tax - will continue to be administered by the individual taxing authorities.
The voting delegates of the TCC meet on the third Wednesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. Meetings are open to the public and are held at the Middle Paxton Municipal Building, 10 Elizabeth Avenue, Dauphin, PA 17018. Minutes of previous meetings can be found at the link provided below.
