If you work in Maryland, West Virginia or are self employed this tax may not be withheld from your earnings. If this is the case, you are required to pay quarterly estimated payments to the Franklin County Area Tax Bureau.

The Tax Bureau is located at 443 Stanley Avenue in Chambersburg and their  phone number is
717-263-5141 if you have any questions or if you need the tax forms mailed to you. Click on the website link www.fcatb.org for more information.
