PSD Codes - Pennsylvania Act 32

 This section discusses the changes performed in Tax Reporter to accommodate the requirements related to the Pennsylvania Act 32.

Tax Reporter has been enhanced, effective year 2011, in order to report the two-digit Tax Collection District (TCD) in replacement of the locality name in box 20 of Form W-2 for the localities in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

For this, a new tax form field has been introduced under main form HR_F_W2 named PAPS. This tax form field is responsible for:

  • Retrieving the six-digit Political Subdivision (PSD) code from table T5UTZC based on the Tax Authority.
  • Extracting the first two digits (which refer to the TCD code) and reporting them in form HR_F_W2.

Identify and Configure the New Tax Form Fields

The Year End Phase II has delivered to accommodate the new requirements for accomplish the configuration of the new Pennsylvania Act 32. There are some steps that may be checked in case that the form HR_F_W2_MULT_11 was not correctly updated, giving the followed short dump described below:

"The object "%WORKAREA1" does not have a component called "PAPS"." " " "

In case these steps of the Year End 2011 Phase II have been followed but the error is still happening, go through these steps:

1)      Check main form HR_F_W2 in V_T51T8 for field PAPS with form processing indicator checked 




2)      Check in SFP PDF form HR_F_W2_MULT_11 if this field exists in the context


There are some cases when the form is correctly created but the information related to this box is no longer displayed.

If this field doesn’t appear in the section context, it’s necessary to refresh the form HR_F_W2_MULT_11. 

3)      If not, check in structure P10_SHR_F_W2 if the field exists

If it doesn’t exist in the structure, it means the user probably doesn’t have the   needed authorization to change and activate objects in the system. 

4)            If it exists, ask them to refresh the PDF context in SFP and activate again.
