About YATB
The York Adams Tax Bureau collects earned income tax and other local taxes for 124 member municipalities and school districts in York and Adams counties. YATB employs 40+ full- and part-time customer-service oriented individuals whose mission is “Local Tax Collection with Integrity.” Last year the Bureau distributed nearly $250 million in tax revenue to our local communities. Each member of our team is a vital part of that process.
YATB utilizes a custom-built database and software package to efficiently process individual and employer tax returns. All forms are scanned and data is collected using OCR. Collected data is then verified and processed. Images are stored electronically. Tax revenue collected is allocated and distributed monthly, both to YATB membership and other outside tax collectors.
