Governor Wolf Announces One-Stop-Shop for Business Tax Account Changes at Department of Revenue December 16, 2016 Efficiency, Government That Works, Press Release, Results Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf and Revenue Secretary Eileen McNulty today announced the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue’s launch of a new Tax Registration Office to improve how businesses register and update information with the department.“The new streamlined process is another example of how my administration is listening to taxpayers and making innovative enhancements to improve customer service and create a government that works,” Governor Wolf said.“The Tax Registration Office is a one-stop shop to register and update business tax account information with the department,” said Secretary McNulty. “No longer will taxpayers need to contact multiple bureaus for their tax registration needs.The Tax Registration Office combines the business registration functions previously managed separately by the Bureau of Business Trust Fund Taxes and the Bureau of Corporation Taxes.Existing department staff were reassigned to the office to improve customer service.The Tax Registration Office handles the registration and maintenance for corporate tax, employer withholding tax, promoter licenses, public transportation assistance tax licenses, sales tax exempt status, sales, use, hotel occupancy tax licenses, small games of chance licenses/certificates, transient vendor certificates, use tax, vehicle rental tax, and wholesaler certificates.The office will assist business taxpayers with updating their address, bank account information, entity ID, legal or trade name, filing status, and filing frequency, as well as cancelling an account. Corporate filers can also update corporate officer information with the office.To further benefit taxpayers, the existing phone numbers will remain the same. For questions about corporation taxes, contact 717-705-6225 and select option 8. For information regarding business trust fund taxes, contact 717-787-3653.Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolf SHARE Email Facebook Twitter

The Senate Committee on Education and Public Administration has recommended to plenary to confirm Minister of Education-designate, George Werner. He is the former director-general of the Civil Service Agency (CSA).According to the Committee’s report to plenary on Thursday, which was expected to be acted upon in executive session, Mr. Werner and other nominees to the Ministry of Education posts were found to be qualified for their respective designated positions following what was described as ‘thorough scrutiny.’The recommendation was signed by five of the six members of the Education Committee namely Senators Albert Chie, co-chair; Conmany Wesseh, Milton Teahjay, Oscar Cooper, the Chairman Jewel Howard Taylor, and the excused Senator Joseph Nagbe.Mr. Werner replaces Madam Etmonia David Tarpeh who has gone to the National Investment Commission (NIC) as head.The soft-spoken recommended Minister informed the Senate Committee during his confirmation hearing last month, that he will leave no stone unturned to ensure that the country’s education system is overhauled from “mess to best.”Despite his experience as a classroom teacher for years, Mr. Werner told the hearing that he would need the political support in order to succeed.It may be recalled that Mr. Werner was once rejected by the Senate for the position of Health Minister after Senators argued that he “lacked the requisite qualification” to head such an important post since he was not a medical practitioner.The issue of requisite qualification was one of the sticky concerns raised by members of the Health committee headed Dr. Peter Sonpon Coleman, when the then Minister-designate appeared for confirmation hearing.Werner had informed the committee that he has basic knowledge in public health care from the Children Hospital in the state of Pennsylvania, United States of America, and also taught some public health courses at the Mother Patten College of Health Sciences in Monrovia on two separate occasions.But that did not qualify him to become the Minister of Health in the wisdom of the Senators.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
