Important Note: W-2 Instructions: Box 20 is to contain the 2 digit PSD code of the Tax Collection District of where the tax withheld was paid to(typically the 1st 2 digits of the PSD of the work location unless doing state wide reporting to a single collector). For employers who have elected to file state wide with LCTCB all W-2s should have a "36" in Box 20. If an employee changed work locations and tax was submitted to multiple collectors for a single employee the employee should receive either multiple W2s or a W2 with multiple lines for local tax withheld breaking out the amount paid to each TCD.
Employers Must submit Reconciliation only for Tax Withheld paid to LCTCB. Tax Paid to Other Collectors must be Reconciled with the appropriate Collector.
All Tax withheld for work locations outside of LCTCB's jurisdiction must be submitted to the collector that has jurisdiction for the work location, unless they have payroll operations out of state or inside LCTCB's jurisdiction then you can elect to file monthly state wide with LCTCB. See the ACT 32 tab for more information on this option. Employers who do courtesy withholdings for employees who live in Lancaster county and work outside of Pennsylvania will continue to report to LCTCB quarterly.
