How Do I Update My Pennsylvania Tax Tables?


Where do I find the tax tables?

For information on PA tax withholdings, refer to publication REV-580 "Pennsylvania Employer Withholding" from the PA Department of Revenue website.

Which tables do I use?

PA uses a flat percentage for income tax withholding. As published in brochure REV-580 (01-14), the rate is 3.07%.

Note that the figures shown in this document are for demonstration purposes only, and may not be current. Please consult the current publication for the most up-to-date information. Though the figures change periodically, the method of calculation should remain the same. If the calculation method has changed for this state please notify the webmaster.

How to setup/update the tables in PowerChurch Plus

To setup/update PowerChurch Plus with a PA state tax table, select the Accounting menu, Payroll, Setup, then Maintain Tax Tables.

Click Add to enter a new table, or use the Find/Locate buttons to select an existing PA tax table to update. When adding a new table, you will be prompted for the type of tax table you're adding. Select State: Pennsylvania. Enter the following information:

  • Description: Enter a unique name to identify the tax table (for example, "PA State Tax").
  • Tax type: The type of tax in which this table applies. In this instance, select State Tax.
  • Percentage: Enter the current applicable rate (i.e. 3.07%).
  • Cap: Currently PA does not have a cap for which tax no longer applies, therefore do not check this option. Be sure to consult current publications as this may change.
  • Round tax to nearest whole dollar: If required, check this box to round the calculated tax amount to the nearest whole dollar.

When you are done, the screen should look like this:
