Beginning January 1, 2018, the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue now requires that payments of Pennsylvania source non-employee compensation or business income to a non-resident individual or disregarded entity that has a non-resident member and is reported on a 1099-MISC, have withheld from such payments an amount equal to the tax rate specified at 72 P.S. § 7302 (which is currently 3.07%).
Effective June 26, 2018, Villanova University will withhold and remit income tax from all payments made if the vendor meets the above stated requirements. A Form 1099-MISC will also be filed with the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue noting the full year’s Pennsylvania source non-employee compensation or business income earned and any tax withheld and remitted to the State.
More information about these changes can be found here.
All questions regarding this tax should be addressed by your accountant, or you can contact the PA Department of Revenue.
