WE ARE THE ONLY STATEWIDE ASSOCIATION FOR BUSINESS PRIVILEGE AND MERCANTILE TAX COLLECTORS

Providing the best resource for PA local  business tax collectors.

The Association was formed in 1979.  Our stated purpose is to discuss mutual problems, share experiences and work toward uniform standards in the administration, enforcement, and collection of Business Privilege and Mercantile Taxes.  Where possible, the association strives to promote uniformity of rules and regulations, interpretations, and objectivity in the administration of Pennsylvania local business taxes. 

 

Through our annual tax conference the association provides actionable tips to discover new business and improve voluntary compliance which has helped members increase their overall collections. 

Membership in the association comes with many benefits including our email blasts reporting on news and developments in the PA local business tax arena.  Annual membership in the association costs only $50 per year.  Associate memberships are available for accountants and attorneys representing municipalities at the reduced rate of $40 per year.
