Mandatory Residency Certification Form

This is a reminder that the provisions of Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Act 32 require that every employee (including students with work study or institutional employment jobs) must complete a Residency Certification Form.

A copy of this Form can be accessed here:  Download Local EIT Residency Certification

You will only need to complete the “Employee Information – Residence Location” section. You can also ignore the “Resident EIT Rate” box in that section.  The following link will help you to determine the PSD Code to include on your Form: http://munstatspa.dced.state.pa.us/FindLocalTax.aspx.  Please note that you may need to temporarily allow pop-ups to properly use this Lookup feature.  Also, a P.O. Box cannot be used for either the Form or the Lookup; you must use a street address.

Please submit your completed Residency Certification Form to Carol Ritter in Payroll as soon as possible.  Please also note that you cannot be paid until this Form has been completed and provided to Payroll.  Unless your home address has recently changed, you do not need to complete another Form if you already have one on file with Payroll. 

Questions?  Contact Carol Ritter at x1256.
