Tax Information

Earned Income Tax
The Borough levies an Earned Income/Net Profits tax of 1% of gross compensation and net profits. One half of this one percent collected from residents is turned over to the East Penn School District.
Earned Income Tax is usually withheld by your employer, and will appear as a payroll deduction for local or city tax.

THE EARNED INCOME TAX IS COLLECTED BY BERKHEIMER TAX ADMINISTRATOR.
To contact, call 866-701-7206 or go to their website- hab-inc.com for information. On Berkheimer's website, you can e-file your annual earned income tax or print, complete and mail the tax form.

Real Estate Tax
The Borough real estate tax rate for 2021 is set at 4.25 mills on each dollar of assessed valuation of property. To determine your Borough real estate tax, multiply your total property assessment by 0.00425 (example: Property is asssessed at $200,000, multiply by 0.00425 to determine Borough real estate tax of $850).

If you are placing your payment in the drop box and would like a receipt, please include a stamped envelope to return the receipt to you.
