Following the replacement of Elk County's former earned income tax (EIT) collector CENTAX, by officials citing the company's failure to process tax returns and distribute funds in a timely manner, reports that the company is soon to shut down operations for good have begun to surface.
William Leonard of Berkheimer Associates, the tax collection firm appointed by Elk County's Tax Collection Committee, to replace CENTAX spoke to The Daily Press regarding his knowledge of the situation and what CENTAX's closure could mean for the taxpayers of Elk County, as well as his company's ability to assume operations here.
