What is a Per Capita Tax?

It is a “Head Tax” that everyone 18 years of age and older are required to pay.

What is an Occupation Tax?

This tax is based on employment, but not all of Indiana County Municipalities and School Districts levy occupation taxes.

I have moved, retired or become unemployed, who should I contact? I moved during the year, how do I know which municipality to pay?

Contact your Tax Collector in your municipality. You are responsible for contacting your Tax Collector of any changes to your name, address, or occupation status. Where you live on January 1st of the year determines where you pay taxes at for the entire year.

What is “Statewide Recovery” and "Berkheimer” and why are they sending me a past due bill?
