What is the Centre Tax Agency?
The Centre Tax Agency (CTA), also known as the State College Borough, was established as a result of Act 32 of 2008 in order to provide tax collection services for municipalities and school districts within the Centre County Tax Collection District (TCD).
In addition to serving as the Act 32 Earned Income Tax (EIT) Officer, the Centre Tax Agency serves as the Local Services Tax (LST) Officer for the Bald Eagle Area School District, Bellefonte Area School District, and State College Area School District, and the municipalities (which levy the LST) located within the school districts.
Note: CTA became the LST collector for the Bald Eagle Area School District effective January 1, 2013 for 2013 and future tax years.
