So I've heard that some locales outside the city tax income as Philly does. Is there a summary of this anywhere?

Most municipalities across Pennsylvania charge some kind of an earned income tax. Philadelphia is among the highest at nearly 4%, and many suburban townships and boroughs charge between 1-2%. Many municipalities also charge a flat local services tax—usually $1 per week or $52 per year.

Here’s an official state website to check out: https://munstats.pa.gov/Reports/Repo...n_Excel&type=O
You can easily filter by county and see the complete breakdown of local income taxes for each municipality in that county.

Be advised that even if you reside outside of the city, if you work anywhere within Philadelphia’s city limits, you’re still obligated to pay a non-resident tax of almost 3.5. This Philadelphia non-resident tax can be claimed as a credit against what you would have had to pay to your municipality of residence, though.
