Earned Income Tax (EIT) and Local Service Tax (LST)

Act 32 provides for the consolidation of Earned Income and Local Service Tax Collection to countywide tax collection districts and for the standardization of the local tax collection process. One of the most significant changes will be mandatory payroll withholding of these taxes. Keystone Collections Group was selected to serve as the Bucks County Tax Officer effective January 1, 2012.
