Certification of Assignments Working IN Philadelphia  –  All employees that have an office location outside Philadelphia, traveling into the city of Philadelphia for work, are subject to the Philadelphia non-resident tax rate on wages earned while working in the city. Anyone working in Philadelphia for more than 15 days a year is required to report all time worked in Philadelphia to Payroll within two weeks of each work assignment on this form. These wages will be taxed at the Philadelphia non-resident rate.

Certification of Assignments Working Outside of Philadelphia  –  Non-resident Philadelphia office employees are required to pay the Philadelphia wage tax at the non-resident rate on all wages earned, unless on Judiciary assignment outside the city. This includes wages earned working from home, lump sum merits, vacation, holiday and sick days, as well as leave payouts upon termination. Working from home at the employee's convenience is not a Judiciary work assignment outside the city and cannot be considered working outside of the city. Philadelphia non-resident employees will have wages withheld at the Philadelphia non-resident rate for all hours in a pay period unless hours worked outside the city of Philadelphia are reported to Payroll on this form within two weeks of the work assignment.

Deferred Compensation –  To change/stop/start existing payroll deductions for deferred compensation, employees currently enrolled in the deferred compensation program should log on to their account on the State Employees’ Retirement System (SERS) website (www.sers.pa.gov) within the Deferred Compensation Plan Account Sign In.

If you are actively considering retirement and want to explore deferring from your leave payout, please call SERS at 1-800-633-5461 as soon as possible.  There are a number of HR, payroll, and retirement system deadlines involved, which can cause this to be a lengthy process.
