If you are unsure of your local county or school district name, the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue recommends using the Department of Economic Development's tool to find your municipality. Input the city, address and ZIP code of your home or business to find the county and school district name. Use that information to locate your school district tax code. If you changed addresses during the tax year, use the address that you lived in at the end of the year to find your school district tax code. The Pennsylvania Department of Revenue uses the school district tax codes to calculate school funding.

The Pennsylvania Department of Revenue recommends filing your tax return online, or downloading and printing income tax booklets, which include school district tax codes, from the department's website. The booklets are also available by request through calling, emailing or writing to the Department of Revenue. The state's revenue department stopped automatically mailing income tax booklets to taxpayers in 2013, according to the DOR.
