PSD Codes (political subdivision codes) are six-digit numbers that uniquely identify each municipality—township, borough, city—in Pennsylvania. PSD Codes play an integral role in assisting employers and tax collectors to remit and distribute the correct amount of local Earned Income Tax to the correct taxing jurisdictions.
  • The first TWO (2) digits of a PSD Code represent the Tax Collection District (TCD)—in most cases, the county—in which the address is located.
  • In combination, the first FOUR (4) digits of a PSD Code represent the School District (SD) in which the address is located.
  • In combination, all SIX (6) digits of a PSD Code represent the political subdivision (PSD)—township, borough, city—in which the address is located.
