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"

2014 Local Earned Income Tax Returns

Keystone Collections Group recently mailed the 2014 Local Earned Income Tax Returns and instructions to the taxpayers in our community.  Your 2014 local earned income tax return is due on April 15.

Did you know the quickest way to get your refund is to file online? If you live and work in Pennsylvania, you can e-file on our tax administrator’s secure website, which is available 24/7 at  You will need your W-2 form, your Social Security Number and any other income documents that may apply (such as a PA-UE or a Schedule C).

Please note that the forms changed this year. If you will be claiming an out-of-state tax credit or if you work in Philadelphia, you may be eligible for a local earned income tax credit up to the amount you owe to your resident municipality. The worksheet on the back of the form will help you calculate your out-of-state tax credit (attach a copy of your out-of-state filing).  

If you have questions regarding local tax filing, call Keystone’s Taxpayer Helpline at 1-888-328-0565 to speak with a local, knowledgeable Taxpayer Service Agent. You can also email your questions to “Taxpayer Support” at
