Washington Township residents are required to pay a Local Earned Income Tax and a Net Profit Tax each year. The tax rate is 1% of the earnings and is shared equally between the Waynesboro Area School District and the Township.
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.
In order to avoid interest and penalty charges added to your tax liability please contact the tax bureau as soon as possible to determine how best to resolve your tax situation.
