Keystone Collections has replaced Berkheimer for Earned Income Tax Collection
Beginning in 2011, all Chester County municipalities and school districts will have a single earned income tax collector. The state passed the earned income tax collection consolidation act (act 32) in 2008. It consolidates collections by County; requiring uniform withholding, remittance, distribution and reporting. Act 32 also establishes uniform statewide rules and regulations and provides for accountability, oversight, and enforcement of the system. In September 2009, appointed representatives from each municipality and school district formed the Chester Tax Collection Committee. This group analyzed the needs of the municipalities and school districts and then determined how best to implement the new tax regulations in the county. In August of 2010, after reviewing the tax collection rates and capabilities of private tax collection firms, the Committee voted to appoint Keystone Collections Group. As a resident, you will have to file your tax return with a different collector, but much of the process should stay the same. All filings after January 1, 2011 will be made to Keystone Collections Group.
