The Pennsylvania Department of Revenue has changed the electronic filing requirement threshold for W2 wage records. Employers that provide and/or report 10 or more wage and tax statement (Form W-2) records on the Annual Withholding Reconciliation Statement (REV-1667), must file the forms electronically on e-TIDES . The change is in effect for tax year 2018 filings. 

REV-1667 and the individual W-2 must be filed by January 31, regardless if this date falls on a weekend or holiday. Detailed instructions on how to file these forms is available on the departments’ website .

The department will grant a waiver on the electronic filing threshold change for the 2018 tax period, if needed. However, all employers are encouraged to file electronically .
