AMENDED Earned Income Tax Filing
The standard procedure for filing an amended Berkheimer earned income tax return is to use the basic form and write AMENDED across the top of it. If an amended return is being filed due to an overpayment on the original, fill in the payment amount made on the original as a Quarterly payment (line 9), calculate the tax due and request a refund of the overpayment. For further assistance, please contact Berkheimer (toll free) 1-866-701-7205.
On June 12, 2003 the Board of Commissioners of Abington Township passed Ordinance #1897 which amends Section 2 of Ordinance 1887 by increasing the earned income tax rate from 1/2% to 1% effective July 1, 2003.
A tax at the rate of one percent (1%) on each dollar is hereby imposed on all earned income and net profits, as defined within the ordinance, earned by residents of the Township of Abington and on all earned income and net profits earned by non-residents of the Township of Abington for work done or services performed or rendered in said Township. Effective July 1, 2003 the 1% tax imposed on residents of Abington Township will be shared with Abington School District per their adoption of a 1/2% earned income tax, which became effective July 1, 2003 as well.
All employers within Abington Township are required to withhold the tax (1%) effective July 1, 2003 from all employees, with the exception of Philadelphia city residents. Most resident taxpayers will have this tax deducted by their employers. Those that do not, will have to file on a quarterly basis with the designated tax agency.
