Local governments in Pennsylvania are authorized to impose a variety of local taxes, such as the earned income tax and the real property tax. Employers are required to withhold from their employees earned income and local services taxes imposed by municpalities and school districts. The local services tax - formerly known as emergency and municipal services tax replaced the occupational privilege tax. The Governor's Center for Local Government Services is required by section 9 of the Local Tax Enabling Act (Act 511 of 1965) to maintain official information on these taxes in the Local Tax Register.
