Earned Income Tax

The Springfield Township Earned Income Tax is set at a rate of one percent (1%)

The local Earned Income Tax filing due date has been extended to July 15, 2020, matching the State and Federal requirement. Employers and Payroll Companies are still required to submit their Employer Quarterly Local Earned Income Tax Return by April 30th, 2020. The extension from April 15th to July 15th for Individual Annual Filings does not apply to Employers. Please contact Berkheimer with questions.

Tax Collector: Berkheimer Tax Innovations

Residents of Springfield Township and nonresidents working in the Township are subject to the tax, which is assessed on earned income. There is an exemption from the Earned Income Tax for any individual earning less than $12,000 annually.

Berkheimer Tax Innovations is the appointed Earned Income Tax collector for Springfield Township. As the appointed collector, Berkheimer is charged with administering the collection of the tax, establishing rules and regulations to fairly enforce the collection and creating accurate tax records and accounts for each taxpayer. 

Most resident taxpayers will have this tax deducted by their employers if they work in Pennsylvania. Although, if you work in a jurisdiction where it is not withheld, or your are self-employed, you will have to register with, and pay the tax directly to Berkheimer Tax Innovations. If earned income taxes are NOT withheld, all applicable resident taxpayers must file a local annual earned income tax return each year by April 15th for the preceding year, whether tax is due or is not due. The annual return may be obtained from Berkheimer Tax Innovations.

Refer to the Earned Income Tax Frequently Asked Questions for general questions and answers about the tax.
