Frequently Asked Questions

eReporting is the new electronic employer reporting application at SWRTB.

eReporting allows for manual input, or direct submission, of employee Certificate of Residency form information, wages and withholdings. Your Certificate of Residency information becomes your template for speed entry of data.

eReporting also allows for electronic submission through the uploading of reporting data using the Enhanced EFW2 format. 

eReporting facilitates the payment of withheld taxes through Check or ACH Debit.

The easiest way to set up an employer wage tax account is to register as an Employer in the eReporting system.

Otherwise, either call our office, download an employer registration form from our website and fax or mail, or email us at info@swrtb.org

The most efficient methods of remitting the local EIT will be through the eReporting system by ACH Debit.

You may also pay by check.    If you pay by check you must include either the Employer IT-8E Quarterly Reporting Form or the payment voucher from your eReporting submission session.

There are three reporting methods available to file returns and remittance:

1. Electronically submit through the eReportingapplication using an Enhanced EFW2 data file. You can download the file layout under the Resources Tab;

2. Manual entry or direct submission through the eReporting website. Using the Certificates of Residency to create your employee template, data entry is fast and easy;

3. File by mail using the Employer IT-8E Quarterly EIT Tax Form. 

Note: Options 1 and 2 meet our request that employers reporting more than 50 employees file electronically.

Look under the Act 32 Tab for more information.

In simple terms, Act 32 has three requirements for Employers:

1. Employers must obtain a completed Certificate of Residency for ALL employees;

2. Employers must withhold local earned income tax from ALL employees;

3. Employers must report employee detail and local income taxes and remit withheld taxes on a quarterly or monthly basis;

In addition, we require that any employer reporting 10 or more employees submit their report electronically.    Filing using eReporting satisfies this request.

LST submissions can now be filed using eReporting.

The Mercantile Tax is levied on the gross receipts of local businesses.  It sometimes is known as the business gross receipts tax, or business privilege tax.

The Mercantile Tax can be levied on wholesale and retail trade, as well as restaurants.

The Local Tax Reform Act of 1988 prohibited imposing any new mercantile taxes after November 30, 1988, though jurisdictions which were using the tax at that time are allowed to continue to levy it.

The Amusement Tax is a tax on the privilege of engaging in an amusement.  It is tax levied on the admissions prices to places of amusement, entertainment, and recreation.

Amusements can include such things as craft shows, bowling alleys, golf courses, ski facilities, or county fairs.

The Amusement Tax is considered a tax on patrons, even though it is collected from the operators of the amusement.
