All individuals who work in the Town of McCandless are required to pay the Local Services Tax for any week you are employed at a location in the Town and for any amount of time.
The tax rate is $52.00 per year and is withheld on a per-pay period basis. If you are paid semi-monthly, your employer should withhold $2.16 per pay period. Note that you are only responsible for the tax for the time you work in the Town (example: If you work in the Town for five weeks during the calendar year, only $5.00 should be withheld from your pay).
Any person earning less than $12,000 in a calendar year in the Town is exempt from the tax and can complete an Exemption Certificate to be filed with their employer and Keystone Collections. Persons who are exempt but have had the tax withheld may apply for a refund.
Keystone Collections Group (Keystone) is the Local Services Tax collector for the Town. Residents or employers with additional questions, should call Keystone at 724-978-0300 or visit their website.
