Q&A with the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue

Please comment on the process for obtaining a PA ID number for a corporation whose only connection to the state is from activities from an interest in a pass-through entity.

Sep 30, 2013
It is our understanding that Corporation Taxes have been removed from the PA 100 online registration form and that Secretary of State filings will be the primary trigger for creation of a corp tax account. It is also our understanding that the eTIDES system will not permit a payment account to be created without a PA tax ID number. Please comment on the process for obtaining a PA ID number for a corporation whose only connection to the state is from activities flowing through from an interest in a pass-through entity, such that the corporation is not required to register with the Secretary of State and is not subject to any other taxes covered by the PA 100.

The corporation can send a letter (on company letter head) requesting an account to be opened. This letter must include the Name of the corporation, address of the corporation, document from the IRS showing the EIN. This letter must be sent to: 

PA Department of Revenue
Bureau of Corporation Taxes
Accounting Division
P.O. Box 280701
Harrisburg, PA  17128-0701

If the corporation or the representative of the corporation calls the Accounting Division and is told to contact the Dept of State and is not getting the answer as stated in the paragraph above ask to be transferred to Shirley Witter Supervisor in the Accounting Divison or Mark Russo Chief of the Accounting Division.
