Chester County Hazard Mitigation Plan


Chester County has recently completed the draft version of its county-wide hazard mitigation plan.  The mitigation plan aims to reduce the impacts from future disasters by outlining actions that can be taken now, before the emergency begins.  The County is looking for your input and local knowledge to aid us in ensuring that it has covered the concerns of all communities in this plan.

The plan is broken into two sections.  The first is an overview of the hazards facing the county and the county-wide hazard mitigation actions.  The second half focuses on the hazards and mitigation actions specific to each municipality, with two to three pages per municipality.  The County has a draft version of the plan and a comment form available online for your review at as well as hard copies available at the 18 libraries throughout the county.  The County will be accepting comments on the plan through March 1st.

Local Tax Return is Due April 15

It’s that time of year again. Your 2014 local earned income tax return is due on April 15th.

Did you know the quickest way to get your refund is to file online? If you live and work in Pennsylvania, you can e-file on our tax administrator’s secure website, which is available 24/7 at

Keystone Collections Group’s e-file is the easy, fast and secure way to file your 2014 tax return.  It lets you file your tax return when it is most convenient for you. You will need your W-2, your Social Security Number and any other income documents that may apply (such as a PA-UE or a Schedule C).

Please note that the forms changed this year. If you will be claiming an out-of-state tax credit or if you work in Philadelphia, you may be eligible for a local earned income tax credit up to the amount you owe to your resident municipality. The worksheet on the back of the form will help you calculate your out-of-state tax credit (attach a copy of your out-of-state filing).

If you have questions regarding local tax filing, call Keystone’s Taxpayer Helpline at 1-888-328-0565 to speak with a local, knowledgeable Taxpayer Service Agent. You can also email your questions to “Taxpayer Support” at
