Earned Income Tax
FILING DEADLINES HAVE BEEN EXTENDED TO JULY 15, 2020
Notice posted on Keystone Collections Website
As in years past, local EIT filing deadlines always aligned with the Federal and State filing deadlines. Accordingly, the new due date for 2019 Final Returns and 1st Quarter 2020 estimate payments is July 15, 2020.
During this challenging time, our country, our families and our businesses are facing the challenges of COVID-19. We at Keystone first and foremost wish you and yours health and safety. Our thoughts are with those afflicted with the virus and the health professionals caring for them.
The PA Department of Revenue and the IRS announced that income tax filing deadlines for both the final return (2019) and the 1st Quarter (2020) are extended to July 15, 2020. For local EIT purposes, Keystone is accordingly extending these Individual filing deadlines to match the State and Federal date of July 15. Keystone will not apply penalty and interest on Tax Year 2019 Final Return payments nor 1st Quarter estimates until after July 15, 2020.

The Earned Income Tax (EIT) is a 1% tax levied on the earned income and net profits of Franklin Park residents. The tax is collected by Keystone Collection Group and then distributed equally between the Borough and North Allegheny School District.
PA Act 32 went into effect on January 1, 2012, which requires all employers in Pennsylvania, with a few exceptions, to withhold their employee's EIT through payroll deductions and to submit it to the proper Tax Collection District in Pennsylvania based upon the employee's Residency Certification Form.
