If you live in Philadelphia and have unearned income, you must file and pay the School Income Tax (SIT) every year. SIT is due to the City at the same time as your federal tax returns –this year, no later than April 17.

It’s been around for 50 years, but this tax still confuses some people. We asked Deputy Revenue Commissioner Dave Dorman to help clarify.

Watch the video below, or read more about SIT on our website.
