Morrisville Borough is joining 52 other municipalities and school districts that already impose the local earned income tax in Bucks County. All residents of Morrisville Borough and nonresidents working in the Borough are subject to the one (1%) percent tax on earned income and net profits. Effective, July 1st, 2022, Keystone Collections Group serves as the local earned income tax administrator. Employers are required to withhold this payroll tax beginning on July 1st, 2022.
Residents who work but are not subject to payroll withholding are required to remit quarterly tax payments for the third and fourth quarter of 2022, and quarterly going forward. Information on the change, including filing instructions, will be mailed to residents and businesses in June.
“Many residents already pay this tax in their employer’s jurisdiction,” said Joe Lazzaro, Keystone’s vice president and general counsel. “The action by Morrisville helps to keep this tax revenue in their resident’s home community.”
