State law requires Pennsylvania residents with earned income to file a local tax return even if your employer withholds the tax from payroll or even if you are not due a refund. If you don’t have payroll withholding, work in Philadelphia and/or have net profits, you are required to file a local earned income tax return.
Why wait? File online today with e-file.
