Shamokin City Residents

Dear Taxpayer,

Please be advised that Shamokin City has enacted a rate increase to the resident earned income tax.  This rate will be effective January 1, 2015.  The new tax rate is levied on the wages, salaries, commissions, compensation and earned income of all City residents at 2% (1.5% for Shamokin City and 0.5% for Shamokin Area School District).

Pennsylvania employers are required to withhold the proper earned income tax rate.  As such, please make sure your employer is aware of the rate change for 2015.  If you are self-employed or if you have earnings reported on Form 1099, report your income and pay your 2015 tax quarterly.  Quarterly reporting forms will be available and mailed to self-reporting taxpayers in January, 2015.

If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact the Earned Income Tax collector, Keystone Collections Group, at (724) 978-0300.

The easy way to file is e-File.  Keystone makes online filing as easy as possible.  Filing on e-File is faster and more convenient than paper filing.  To start, visit and select "Taxpayer Resources."  Thank you for your attention to this important tax information.

For additional help and information, see Keystone's "Frequently Asked Questions"
