In addition to the Real Estate Tax, the township collects an Earned Income Tax (EIT). The EIT is revenue received under Act 511 from tax dollars levied upon wages, salaries, commissions, net profits of other compensation of the residents of the Methacton School District.

The EIT is collected by Berkheimer Tax Administrator, a professional collection firm, under contract by the municipality and school district.

The earned income tax rate in the Methacton School District is 1%. 

Of this 1%, Worcester Township collects 1/2 of 1% - with the remainder going to Methacton School District.  All Methacton School District residents are required to file a Local Earned Income Tax return whether or not the tax is withheld, taxes are due, a refund is due, or even if you have no earned income.

Real Estate Taxes in Worcester Township

The tax rate for Township real estate taxes will remain at .05 mills. A mill is $1 per $1,000 of assessed value.  The owner of a property assessed at $200,000, will continue to pay $10.00 for the Township portion of their real estate taxes as of 2017.
