As of January 1, 2012, Berkheimer will be the Earned Income (Wage) Tax Collector for all of Westmoreland County. All employers are now required to withhold your local 1% earned income tax. Be sure to notify your employer that you live in South Greensburg Borough, or you may pay more than 1%. You will still be required to file your 2011 final year end Earned Income Tax Return at the South Greensburg Tax Office, 1644 Broad Street, South Greensburg, PA by April 15, 2012.
Please be aware that all self-employed residents will be required to make quarterly estimated tax payments to Berkheimer, or be charged substantial interest and penalties. Tax forms for estimated taxes can be downloaded from Berkheimer’s website at www.hab-inc.com.
Due to this change, the South Greensburg Tax Office hours will be reduced to two days per week. The Tax Office hours will be MOnday, 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and Tuesday, 3:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Additional hours will be available during the last two weeks of the discount period for real estate taxes. You can still file by mail with a self-addressed, stamped envelope for a return receipt. There is also a mail slot for drop offs.
Thank you for the opportunity to be of service!
