One of Lower Nazareth Township’s largest source of local revenue is our 1.45% earned income tax, which is split as .7% for the Nazareth Area School District, .25% Open Space Preservation, and .5% for the Township.

Local income tax in Pennsylvania is based upon where you live rather than where you work.

The Local Tax Enabling Act requires every employer having a factory, workshop, branch, warehouse, or other place of business within the taxing jurisdiction to register with the earned income tax officer of that district. All employers with worksites within the taxing jurisdiction are required by law to deduct the earned income tax from their employees at that site. You may consult the Local Tax Register at https://dced.pa.gov/local-government/local-income-tax-information/instructions-employers/

Individuals who are self-employed or whose employer doesn’t withhold the full 1.45% are required to pay it directly. Penalties will be added if not paid quarterly.

Lower Nazareth Township requires all persons moving into, out of, or within the Township to apply for a Moving Permit. Securing a Moving Permit allows the Township to document your moving date and forwarding address. This updated information makes processing your tax documents more convenient for you. The fee for a Moving Permit is $5 and permits may be secured at the Township Office during normal business hours.
