There are only three municipalities in Montgomery County that do not have an earned income tax, Upper Merion, Lower Merion and Narberth. Some borough officials are hoping to take Narberth off that very short list, as officials have begun discussing a plan to add a 1% earned income tax.
In a letter to the council, Narberth borough manager Samantha Bryant said slightly more than 70% of the borough’s 2022 general fund revenue came from property taxes.
She argued that reliance on property tax causes an inequitable distribution of the tax burden.
According to information provided in the letter to the council, anyone with income under $12,000 or income that comes from Social Security, a pension or disability would not be assessed the EIT.
Besides who would pay the new tax, the other major question would be how much money it could generate for the borough. According to information Bryant requested from Berkheimer, the company that collects the tax in Montgomery County, a 1% EIT would generate $675,000 to $700,000 in 2023.
