    Local Tax Return is Due April 18

    It’s that time of year again. The 2015 local earned income tax return filing deadline is approaching. The due date is extended to Monday April 18 this year because Washington DC is commemorating Emancipation Day on Friday April 15.

    Did you know the quickest way to get your refund is to file online? If you live and work in Pennsylvania, you can e-file on our tax administrator’s secure website, which is available 24/7 at

    Keystone Collections Group’s e-file is the easy, fast and secure way to file your 2015 tax return.  It lets you file your tax return when it is most convenient for you. You will need your W-2, your Social Security Number and any other income documents that may apply (such as a PA-UE or a Schedule C).

    Keystone redesigned e-file to make it even faster and more user-friendly.

    If you have questions regarding local tax filing, visit Keystone’s Frequently Asked Questions or call Keystone’s Taxpayer Helpline at 1-888-328-0565 to speak with a local, knowledgeable Taxpayer Service Agent.

    Notice of Preliminary Budget & Intent to Seek Back-End Referendum Exceptions

    Northern Tioga School District
    Notice of Preliminary Budget and Intent to Seek Back-End Referendum Exceptions

    The Pennsylvania Department of Education in accordance with the Pennsylvania Taxpayer Relief Act (Act 1 of Special Session 2006), has limited the Northern Tioga School District’s real estate tax increase for the 2016-17 fiscal year to 3.5 percent unless the voters approve a ballot question for a tax rate that exceeds the index or the School District qualifies for referendum exception(s) specified in the Act.  The School District is eligible for one or more of the exceptions listed in Act 1.

    Notice is hereby given that the Northern Tioga School District intends to seek approval from the Pennsylvania Department of Education or the local Court of Common Pleas for referendum exceptions allowed under the Act.  The Department of Education or the local Court of Common Pleas may schedule a hearing on this matter.  Notice of the hearing, if held, will be provided in advance by the School District.   If the exception application is approved, the funds generated by the tax increase may be used by the School District to balance its preliminary and final budgets.  This tax increase is required so that the School District can continue to provide a quality K-12 education program for its students.

    The School District’s preliminary budget is available for public inspection at the School District administration office located at 110 Ellison Road, Elkland, Pennsylvania during normal business hours between 8:00 am and 3:00 pm or on the district website ( under Departments – Business Office.  Upon written request by any School District resident or taxpayer, the School District will provide a copy of the referendum exception application.
