Linglestown Gazette: Linglestown Monday update

Linglestown Monday update

Community notes Mikado Japanese Steak House and Sushi Bar might have opened for business over the weekend. The new eatery is in the building at the intersection of N. Mountain Road and N. Lockwillow Avenue that formerly housed Senor Pepe’s Tex-Mex. The parking lot was packed with cars Saturday night. ... Gazette congratulations go out to Kyler Leinbach, a third grader at Linglestown Elementary School, who recently won first place in the Pennsylvania Dental Association’s 2008 poster contest. Over 20,000 third-grade students across Pennsylvania submitted entries.

More tax bureau scuttlebutt The Patriot-News editorial board weighs in on Central Dauphin School Board’s decision to dump Capital Tax Collection Bureau (CTCB), the agency that collects local income taxes for the Linglestown area. And, an earned income tax collector from Franklin County says the school board didn't do their homework and should be kept after school for pulling the plug on CTCB.

In my view, the controversy over CTCB is indicative of the need for the state’s horse-and-buggy style system for collecting local taxes to be revamped and modernized. Hopefully Rep. Ron Marsico and Sen. Jeffrey Piccola are Gazette readers.

Sunday’s big event Linglestown Elementary School PTO is hosting a Basket Bingo event this Sunday, May 4 at the Linglestown Fire Hall that will benefit the group’s playground project. There is limited seating, so CLICK HERE for details on how to get in on the fun.

I agree with whomever made the comment previously that the local tax collection process in Pennsylvania is quite outdated. My example is local income tax forms -still using carbon paper within a preprinted packet. If local returns could be filed on-line like you can do with the state, that would be fantastic.
