2. Where can I find my Corporate Tax Account Id?

  • You will need to contact your accountant or tax preparer for this information. You can also contact the PA Department of Revenue, Bureau of Corporation Taxes, by calling either 717-783-6031 or 717-705-6225, option 4 then option 2. The PSLA will not have this information available.

3. Why does the copy uploaded into the PSLA Electronic Filing System (EFS) have to include the 1620 monthly reports when they are already filed in the 1620 section of EFS?

  • PSLA reviews the copy of the RCT-123 tax report sent to the Department of Revenue. The 1620 monthly reports in EFS are a record for the Pennsylvania Insurance Department. Unfortunately, agencies sometimes realize an error in a 1620 monthly report and attach a revised 1620 monthly report to the RCT-123 tax report but fail to revise the 1620 monthly report in the EFS 1620 section.

4. We had an account in which the state of the insured was incorrect. The account bound effective December 1, 2011; however, we did not receive the binder in our office until December 15, 2011. We then did not find out that the insured’s state should have been in Pennsylvania until January 6, 2012, therefore we did not file this policy under 2011. Will this account be under taxes filed for 2012 or should I enter the policy now into PSLA’s EFS and revise the December 1620 monthly report, before getting our RCT-123 tax report processed?

  • If the transaction was bound in 2011 the filing should be entered into PSLA’s EFS and the December 1620 monthly report should be revised to include the policy. The policy should be included on the 2011 RCT-123 tax report.
  • Also refer to Answer ID 2848 on the Department of Revenue website.
