Changes in Earned Income Tax Collection
The Chester Tax Collection Committee (CTCC) has 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 Twin Valley School District. 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. Keystone officially began EIT and LST collections for the CTCD on January 1, 2011. This means that Keystone is responsible for processing quarterly, as well as the final earned income tax returns that are due April 15th.
