HAZEL HURST â€“ The Hamlin Township Board of Supervisors is considering the addition of a tax on persons who work at jobs in the township.
The Local Services Tax (LST)â€”formerly known as the Emergency Municipal Services (EMS) taxâ€”is allowed under state law and is assessed by several area municipalities.
The maximum tax permitted by law is $52 a year-- $1 per week.
Those earning $12,000 or less a year can apply for a full tax refund.
The proposed tax would not affect retired persons living in the township.
