A $52 Local Services Tax (LST) is levied by the Township upon individuals engaging in an occupation within the municipality. The employer shall deduct the tax evenly from employee paychecks throughout the year for all employees whose total earned income and net profits from all sources within the township is greater than $12,000.
A 0.5% Earned Income Tax (EIT) is levied as a tax on individual gross earned income / compensation and net profits. The tax is based on the taxpayer’s place of residence (not their place of employment). The EIT is separate from the Pennsylvania personal income tax. In most cases, your employer already deducts the EIT from your regular paycheck.
Note: The EIT rate does not include taxes levied by the Lewisburg Area School District.
