It will reduce the number of state-wide tax collectors from 560 to 69 collection districts
(TCD). All employers (large and small) will be required to withhold EIT from all employees
and remit the collected tax within 30 days of the end of each quarter.
IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR ALL RESIDENTS:
All Earned Income Tax (EIT) will be withheld by employers and remitted to Berkeheimer Tax Administrator (the appointed Tax Officer for the Tax Collection District (TCD) on a quarterly basis.
The taxes will be distributed to the employees proper place of residence, in your case Oakland Township and the Butler Area School District.
ALL EMPLOYEES MUST fill out a Residence certification Form and return it to their employer to ensure that their EIT is withheld and distributed properly.
Employee EIT rates will be decided by the employee’s political subdivision. A complete tax register of all EIT rates can be found at the DCED website:
