This summer as part of Pennsylvania’s annual budget legislation, an electronic payment mandate was instituted starting on January 1, 2022. Any personal income tax payments equal to or greater than $15,000 must now be paid electronically.
Payments not made electronically will be subject to a penalty equaling 3% of the payment amount, with a maximum penalty of $500. This news is especially important to taxpayers with a PA estimated tax payment due January 18.
Payments can be made electronically through MyPath which is PA’s online platform. An account is not required to make a personal income tax payment.
You can access MyPath by clicking here.
- Under the “Payments” section, click “Make a Payment.”
- On the next screen click “Make a Payment” again and then follow the on screen prompts.
The electronic payment options include a direct ACH from a bank account or a payment using a credit card. Note that the credit card option does have some fees associated with it. The fees are detailed on the credit card screen.
