Dauphin Hosts Act 32 Symposium

The Dauphin County Tax Collection Committee is hosting a state-wide conference May 15-16, 2015 to examine the success of Pennsylvania’s Act 32 local earned income tax collection law, several years into the law’s operation. Act 32 governs the local earned income tax, which provides municipalities and school districts across the Commonwealth with billions of dollars annually.

The Symposium, the first of its kind, is bringing together TCC officials, tax collectors, auditors, tax practitioners, and state and local government leaders.

One focus of the two-day seminar, held at the Hilton Garden Inn in Hershey, Pa., is how the state’s 69 county-wide TCCs can effectively manage local tax collectors, according to Dauphin County TCC Solicitor Guy P. Beneventano. Other Symposium topics include:

  • Best Practices and Pennsylvania Regulations
  • The Act 32 Model for Real Estate?
  • Auditing Procedures
  • Role of the Audit Committees

“The tension between too much control and too little is thoughtfully addressed by Act 32,” said August “Skip” Memmi, chairman of the Dauphin County TCC, in an invitation letter to delegates. At the same time, “the ultimate success of county-wide collections is dependent upon the careful appointment and oversight of the tax collector.”
