What is a PSD Code?
PSD Codes (political subdivision codes) are six-digit numbers that uniquely identify each municipality—township, borough, city—in Pennsylvania. PSD Codes play an integral role in assisting employers and tax collectors to remit and distribute the correct amount of local Earned Income Tax to the correct taxing jurisdictions.
Beaver Borough’s PSD Code is 040301. Make sure it is on your paycheck!

Employees are required to complete a Residency Certification Form upon hire (and with any subsequent change in address) in order to confirm the PSD Codes and EIT Rates being used by the employer for the employees’ local taxing purposes. Employers maintain this form in the employees’ personnel files.

  • The first TWO (2) digits of a PSD Code represent the Tax Collection District (TCD)—in most cases, the county—in which the address is located.
  • In combination, the first FOUR (4) digits of a PSD Code represent the School District (SD) in which the address is located.
  • In combination, all SIX (6) digits of a PSD Code represent the political subdivision (PSD)—township, borough, city—in which the address is located.
