Pennsylvania W-9 Form and Information for Suppliers

A W-9 form is an IRS form used by a company to request your Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) and certification. The TIN and Legal Name provided during the registration process must match the W-9 in order to receive a contract or payment. The Payable Services Center will validate that a match exists between the registration and the W-9 form.

Another critical step in the Commonwealth’s validation process is the entry of accurate bank information in the Edit Bank Data & Product Categories page, accessible to logged in Administrative Users. As a supplier capable of receiving payments, this information MUST be completed prior to submission of the W-9 form. You can access this page on the left navigation after you are logged onto the PA Supplier Portal.

Ensure the ACH Banking Information is accurate prior to submission of the W-9 form.

Pennsylvania: Property Tax/Rent Rebate Application Deadline Extended to End of Year 2012

The deadline to apply for Pennsylvania’s Property Tax/Rent Rebate
Program for older adults and residents with disabilities has been extended from
June 30 to Dec. 31.
“Governor Corbett is extending the rebate program deadline because he wants to
be sure everyone who is eligible has time to apply for the tax relief they’re owed,”
said Secretary of Revenue Daniel Meuser. “More than 600,000 older Pennsylvanians
and residents with disabilities are expected to benefit from the program.”
The rebate program benefits eligible Pennsylvanians age 65 and older; widows and
widowers age 50 and older; and people with disabilities age 18 and older. The
income limit is $35,000 a year for homeowners and $15,000 annually for renters,
and half of Social Security income is excluded.
The maximum standard rebate is $650, but supplemental rebates for qualifying
homeowners can boost rebates to $975.
As of May 31, the Revenue Department had received 529,023 rebate applications.
As specified by law, rebate distribution will begin on July 1. After June 30, rebates
will be distributed as claims are received and processed.
Applicants may obtain Property Tax/Rent Rebate claim forms (PA-1000) and related
information online at or by calling, toll-free, 1-888-222-

The Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program is one of five programs supported by the
Pennsylvania Lottery. Since the program’s 1971 inception, older and disabled adults
have received more than $5.1 billion worth of property tax and rent relief. The
expanded portion of the rebate program is paid for with revenue from slots gaming.


Pennsylvania Act 32

Act 32 is a law that reforms and standardizes the local earned income tax system. The appointment of collection responsibility falls on countywide committees made up of representatives from local municipalities and school districts. The committees established tax collection districts and elected tax officers to collect the Earned Income Tax (EIT).

Act 32 requires uniform withholding of earned income taxes and remittance to a single local collector or Tax Officer. The Act applies to the earned income taxes levied and collected after December 31, 2011.

Employers must begin to withhold the local EIT from employees on January 1, 2012. Appointed tax officers start collecting the EIT on January 1, 2012, unless the tax collection district has opted for early implementation.
