Employers with work sites in the Township, or who employ individuals working from a home office in the Township, are required to withhold a Local Services Tax (LST) of $52 annually. The tax should be withheld at a rate of $1 per week and submitted quarterly.
Employees who earn less than $12,000 in the Township, or who have multiple employers, may request an exemption from the tax.
Self-employed individuals working in the Township, or operating out of a home-based office, are also subject to the tax. An independent contractor with no fixed place of business is deemed to be operating in the Township unless they can show that they are paying the tax to another municipality.
Federal and Postal Service employees must pay the tax themselves, since their employer will not withhold.
All employees or self-employed individuals working in Pine must pay a Local Services Tax (LST) of $52.00 annually. Employers withhold the tax at a rate of $1.00 per week and submit it quarterly.

One copy must be submitted to the employee's payroll department and one copy must be submitted to Keystone Collections Group.
