Local Services Tax Collector (Appointed)
Keystone Collections Group
(610) 269-4402
 
Keystone Collections Group is the tax collector for East Whiteland Township's Local Services and Earned Income Taxes. 
 
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.
 
A .5% Earned Income/Net Profits Tax became effective April 3, 1996 by passage of Township Ordinance Number 110-96.  The tax requires that all persons living or working in the Township pay .5% on all individual gross earnings and net profits from businesses.
