Act 32 of 2008
Act 32 was enacted in 2008 to standardize the local earned income taxing system in Pennsylvania. It consolidated the process by creating new tax collection districts (TCDs), standardizing forms and mandating employer withholding statewide in 2012. Act 32 divided the state into 69 TCDs, one TCD for each county with Allegheny County divided into four (4) TCDs. Philadelphia is not part of Act 32 as they fall under the Sterling Act. The number of collectors in the state was reduced to 21.
