hoping for some tax help. Live in a suburb outside PHL in PA (township) and work in center city. I understand I will have to pay the 3.49% PHL wage tax but the question is then what happens to the PA township income tax. Does this get taken out of my paycheck too, think township has a 1% rate, or am I just responsible for paying the PHL wage tax? Or do I pay both and then at end of year get a township credit, pain in the ass but at least get the money back.

I'm hoping I'm not getting taxed by my township and the city.

There is tax reciprocity. Your employer would withhold the Philly tax and it get netted against your local tax. So you would pay the PHL 3.49% and not 4.49% if that makes sense

If you live in NJ and work in Philly the wage tax is deducted from NJ income tax. Goood Deal.
