The Lancaster County Tax Collection Bureau (LCTCB) has provided an important reminder for Lancaster County residents who had earned income or net profits in 2012 – those residents must file a Local Earned Income Tax Return with the county tax collection bureau by April 15. A tax return must be filed even if the employer withheld the correct tax amount and no tax is due. If a return indicates an amount due, sending a payment coupon and check does not meet the requirement of filing a return.
Returns can be filed electronically by using the LCTCB eFiling application at www.lctcb.org.
Failure to file a Local Earned Income Tax Return by April 15 may result in additional costs including interest, penalties and late fees. For more information, email the LCTCB, or call 569-4521.
