What is LST in box 14 of my W2?

On my W2 box 14 displays the following:
PA-UI 27.56
LST 24.00

I found out what PA-UI meant through the help but what does LST mean?
  • Unless someone here knows you would have to ask your employer.  They can put anything they want in box 14.

LST stands for Local Services Tax that a PA municipality may collect for the municipality you WORK in.  You should not pay more than $52 a year of LST.  If they collect more, you can contact the local tax administrator to collect a refund. 

You may deduct this tax as a misc local tax on federal Schedule A if you itemize deductions.

    People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

    1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
    2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
    3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
    4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
    5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
