House of Representatives
Session of 2017 - 2018 Regular Session


Posted: February 22, 2017 01:52 PM
From: Representative George Dunbar
To: All House members
Subject: Act 32 Clarification
In the near future I will be re-introducing former House Bill 245 of the 2015-2016 Legislative Session. This legislation addresses the concerns of tax practitioners in regard to Act 32. Since inception in 2012 it has become apparent that some technical changes are required.

My legislation which is based on recommendations from practitioners includes the following:
  • Clear and concise safe harbor language for estimated taxes.
  • Provides for oversight of the local Tax Collection Committee.
  • Clarification of temporary job assignments (what tax rate should be withheld for en employee on a temporary assignment).
  • W2 Reporting requirements
  • Audits of taxes received and disbursed on a calendar year basis only.
  • Standardized forms by 2020
  • Allows full credit for payments of Earned Income Tax regardless of whether the EIT was authorized by Act 511 or any other Pennsylvania law.
Please join with me in co-sponsoring this legislation which provides more clarity to the local tax collection system.

Introduced as HB866
