Return the form you received in the mail. Each year we mail tax forms to residents who are required to file.
Stop by the office and pick up a form.


  • If mailing your form, you must have your envelope postmarked by midnight on April 15th to avoid possible penalties.
  • If you are submitting your form online, it must be submitted by midnight on April 15th to avoid possible penalties. The collector cannot be responsible for problems in delayed online filing. We recommend you file earlier than the April 15th deadline.

The Danville Earned Income Tax Office is proud to be part of the PALITE family of online services. Employers are now able to submit their employee detail safe and secure.

Act 32 of 2008 stipulates that employers are required to withhold Pennsylvania Local Earned Income Tax from employee’s earnings.  Our office has joined other collectors in their support and use of PALITE.ORG, a non-profit venture of local tax collectors in Pennsylvania.

Using PALITE.ORG is easy, quick, and secure. You can upload your employee detail to the PALITE.ORG website any time of the day or night. The site accepts both Microsoft Excel and Federal MMREF file formats.

If you desire to use the simple to use environment of PALITE, please contact our office to be assigned a username and password.
