The Pennsylvania Department of Revenue has updated the General Information and Specifications for W-2 and PA W-3 Quarterly Filing. As a reminder, Pennsylvania no longer accepts W-2s and 1099s on CD.  The following changes have been made to the publication:

First, Instructions have been added on uploading W-2s to e-TIDES and REV-1997 Annual Withholding Reconciliation Statement. Additionally, further instructions on W-2 EFW2 Format have been added. These instructions include steps on uploading forms, correcting errors, as well as instructions on how to submit REV 1667 manually if it was not uploaded originally.  The DOR has added further instructions on uploading Employer W-2/1099 Employee Records.  Finally, contact information for reaching the DOR to request filing extensions has been added to the document.
