Dear Taxpayer,

REMINDER – Each business that employs individuals at worksites in PA, including
those who work from home, is REQUIRED to withhold the applicable local earned
income tax from employees´ wages and remit the tax to the appropriate tax

Under Act 32, employers are required to withhold the higher of the employee´s
