"As is the case with payroll changes in local, state and federal legislation, rules and regulations, ADP has deployed a specialized team of tax, policy, legal and product development experts across ADP's business segments to assess and modify all necessary systems and processes to help clients comply with the new requirements of PA Act 32," said Wendy Seyfert, vice president of ADP's agency relations. In anticipation of the new requirements, ADP has been offering clients and accountant business partners ongoing guidance and instruction through multiple forums, including periodic legislative and regulatory updates housed on ADP's web site (http://www.adp.com/tools-and-resources/legislative-updates.aspx).  Since passage of PA Act 32 in 2008, ADP has closely monitored all relevant legislative developments and has since continued to engage key stakeholders throughout the Commonwealth.  These include the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development and the 21 earned income tax collectors that represent Pennsylvania's 66 counties and 69 tax collection districts. "ADP will continue to ease the burden of our clients' tax filing obligations by processing or determining the applicable tax rate for the political subdivision codes, when provided by the client, withholding the tax, remitting tax payments and filing required quarterly and annual returns to the appropriate collector," added Seyfert. ADP acknowledges that employers with multiple worksite locations throughout Pennsylvania, or employers with consolidated filings, may opt to file monthly employee-level wage detail and remit monthly EFT payments to a single county collector.  Regardless of the employer's choice, ADP will meet PA Act 32 requirements and file required quarterly and annual returns to the appropriate collector.ADP clients may contact their local client service team for additional information or call 1 800 CALL ADP.About Pennsylvania Act 32 of 2008 Pennsylvania Act 32 of 2008 reforms the Earned Income Tax Collection System for local governments and school districts covered by the Local Tax Enabling Act.  As of January 1, 2012, the Earned Income Tax Collection System will be restructured into 69 Tax Collection Districts (TCD), predominately based on county boundaries.  The collection of taxes for each TCD will be handled by a "certified" tax collector designated by Pennsylvania's Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED).  Employers must fully implement the changes contained in Act 32 beginning on January 1, 2012.About ADPAutomatic Data Processing, Inc.
