Effective January 1, 2012, and in accordance with Pennsylvania Act 7, the Harborcreek Township Board of Supervisors have amended the Local Services Tax (LST). Harborcreek Township has set the amount of the tax at $52.00 annually. The LST replaces the $10 Occupational Privilege Tax (OPT) in 2005 and the $35 Emergency & Municipal Services Tax (EMST) in 2008.
All employers located within the township must withhold the LST at the annual rate of $52, deducted evenly from paychecks throughout the year, for all employees.
Individuals who are self-employed and whose business or practice is in Harborcreek Township are also required to pay the $52 LST. Their $52 is paid in 4 evenly distributed quarterly payments.
