What is the LST?

Originally, called the Occupational Privilege Tax, and now called the Local Service Tax. LST is a tax levied on individuals who are employed in municipalities or in school districts that have enacted the tax. The tax is collected through payroll deductions from all employees. Self-employed individuals pay their own LST. The LST is a flat rate of $1.00 per week or $52.00 per year.
