Changes to Quarterly UC Tax Forms Now in Effect

[30 Pa.B. 3615]

   Employers have begun receiving revised Pennsylvania (PA) Unemployment Compensation (UC) tax forms. The changes are a part of the Department of Labor and Industry's (Department) project to revise PA Form UC-2/2A/2B to be more customer-friendly and machine-readable to efficiently capture the data.

   Specifications to print Department approved facsimile Form UC-2 and UC-2A were mailed out to payroll service providers in early May. Anyone not using the preprinted quarterly reports provided by the Department, or filing by Magnetic Media, will be required to print their reports in accordance with these new specifications.

   The specifications for Form UC-2A (wage detail) can be used immediately. Beginning with the third quarter of 2000, employers will be expected to utilize the Department provided form or an approved facsimile for reporting wage detail. Also beginning with the third quarter of 2000, employers with less than 250 employes can have their employe names and social security numbers preprinted on Form UC-2A. For persons interested in this service, please be sure to fill in the circle beside item No. 6 on Form UC-2A. This item must be completed each quarter for the following quarter to be preprinted. For additional information about Form UC-2A, contact Rosemary Light at (717) 783-3829.

   The new specifications for Form UC-2 (tax return) should not be used until the third quarter of 2000, filed in October of this year. Continue to refer questions about Form UC-2 to Cathy Johnson at (717) 787-5231 or
