Occupational Tax Eliminated
On November 3, 2015, Littlestown Area School District taxpayers voted to eliminate the Occupational Assessment Tax and move to a higher Earned Income Tax (EIT) rate, effective July 1, 2016.
Littlestown residents paid their last Occupational Assessment Tax on July 1, 2015. Starting July 1, 2016, Littlestown residents EIT rate will increase from 1.0% to 1.6%. York Adams Tax Bureau will be notifying employers in early summer of the change. We encourage you to let your employers know of the change as well; however, remember this change does not take effect until July 1, 2016.
Important dates to remember regarding the change:
July 1, 2015 – Last Occupational Assessment bills sent to residents.
July 1, 2016 – Earned income rate of 1.60% takes effect. No Occupational Assessment bills.
