Payroll Withholding

Under the new Act 32 requirements, employers must withhold the greater of the employee's resident tax for where they live or nonresident tax for where they work in accordance with the Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) official tax register. An employer must require each employee to complete a certificate of residency form, which shall be an addendum to the Federal Employee's Withholding Allowance Certificate (Form W-4). Upon request, certificate of residency forms shall be provided by the DCED.

Mandatory withholding of earned income tax affects every Pennsylvania employer in 2012.

Tax rates and jurisdictional codes are available online at "DCED Municipal Statistics Website."

Additional Act 32 information can be found in the Helpful Links section of our website.
