Just because the tax is imposed, it does not mean necessarily that you need to pay more than what you are paying to the city of Philadelphia.

In Springfield Township, the money paid to Philadelphia counts as a credit to the 1% due the township. I only wish I could use her 4% to cover both of our 1%'s. Oh well.

I would advise you to consult a tax professional to be sure in either case.

The tax is imposed an all earnings from employment, whether this is reported on the W-2 and/or business schedules EVEN IF:

-the tax has been withheld at place of employment and no tax is due
-Philadelphia City Wage Tax has been withheld and no tax is due
-total earnings are less than $4,000 and no tax is due
-you are a student, or you are retired, and working part time
-you resided in Upper Moreland Township for less than the entire year
-the Earned Income Office has no record of your employment status
