W-2/1099 Changes for Tax Year 2018 Filing
The PA Department of Revenue has made multiple changes to the EFW2 and .CSV format specifications for filing the W-2/1099 information for tax year 2018. There will be a blackout period at the end of the year starting on Dec. 17, 2018 through Jan. 2, 2019. During this timeframe, you will not be able to upload any W-2/1099 file information in e-TIDES. You will still be able to upload other employer file types. Beginning on Jan. 3, 2019, all W-2/1099 files uploaded must reflect these changes.

     1099-MISC Information
Under Act 43 of 2017, certain payments to non-residents are subject to Pennsylvania personal income tax withholding. Payments that are subject to tax are (1) payments of Pennsylvania source compensation and business income if the payments are reported on a federal form 1099-MISC, and (2) lease payments for Pennsylvania real estate. Withholding is optional if the total payments are less than $5,000 annually.

Any person who makes payments of PA source income to resident and non-resident individuals, entities treated as a partnership for tax purposes, or single member limited liability companies and is required to provide form 1099-MISC to the federal government with respect to the payments must also submit a copy to the Department of Revenue.
