If I am subject to the Philadelphia wage tax, must I also pay this tax?
No. If employed in Philadelphia, you may use the Philadelphia Wage Tax as a credit against your liability to your resident municipality, but the credit may not exceed the current tax rate for your local taxing jurisdiction. No refund or credit can be taken for any withholding greater than the current tax rate for your resident municipality.
