[ARCHIVED] When is a resident actually a non-resident?

Employers of Cranberry residents are obliged to withhold and submit their employees’ 1% local earned income tax to its tax collector. But there is a loophole: if someone has a legal address in another country, they are exempt from Cranberry’s income tax – even if they live and work here. Instead, they are only liable for the taxes imposed by the community of their official residence. And if their home community doesn’t have an income tax, they get off scot free. That’s about to change. At their April 1 meeting, Cranberry’s Board of Supervisors will be asked to amend the Township’s Earned Income Tax ordinance to oblige those living and working in Cranberry to pay the Township’s EIT if they don’t have one to pay where they are officially domiciled. For more information, contact Township Assistant Manager Bert Bertoncello at
