It has been brought to our attention that a taxpayer has posted a photo of their 2014 Local Earned Income Tax Reminder Notice on social media claiming that the notice is a scam. This photo has been shared via social media and has gone viral. As a result other taxpayers may also believe this to be true and will disregarded the reminder notice and fail to file their Local Earned Income Taxes.
We have placed the following statement on our website:
“If you received a 2014 Local Earned Income Tax Reminder Notice, our records show that no return was received from you. If have already submitted the tax return to our office, please return the Reminder Notice with a copy of your entire return (the tax form & all supporting documentation) to PO Box 25108, Lehigh Valley PA 18002-5108. Act 32 of 2008 requires taxpayers to file a return of an income tax and/or to pay an income tax. Act 192 of 2004 permits the taxing district and tax collector to impose the costs of collecting any delinquent taxes directly upon the taxpayer’s account. To avoid unnecessary costs and charges, you should promptly file and pay your earned income taxes accordingly.”
