Why Somerset County residents should no longer call Capital Tax Bureau with tax questions

·1 min read

Somerset County taxpayers will see Keystone Collections Group on some tax forms this year instead of Capital Tax Bureau.

Keystone Collections Group was appointed the new local earned income tax administrator for the county starting Jan. 1. Forms and instructions for tax year 2021 were mailed to businesses in late December and will be mailed to residents next week, according to Keystone.

Keystone is also now in charge of all delinquent tax and some local services tax and some per capita tax collections for Somerset County.

“Keystone is excited to serve the taxpayers of Somerset County,” said Joe Lazzaro, Keystone’s vice president and general counsel. “We encourage Somerset County residents and businesses to report their taxes online using Keystone’s e-file system for quick, easy and secure filing.”

The e-file system is available on mobile devices and desktop computers at efile.keystonecollects.com. Businesses should use business.keystonecollects.com.

Kim Eshelman, executive director of Capital Tax Bureau, said that Somerset County residents with tax questions should call Keystone instead of Capital Tax. Keystone can be reached at 888-328-0565, 866-539-1100 or 724-978-0300.

Capital Tax has also closed its Somerset office. Its other Pennsylvania offices have closed as well, and its business headquarters has moved to New Bloomfield.
