LINE 6 The routing transit number (RTN) must contain nine digits. If the RTN does not begin with 01 through 12, or 21 through 32, the direct deposit or electronic funds withdrawal request will be rejected. PA-8453 NEXT PAGE 1 LINE 7 The depositor account number (DAN) may contain up to 17 alphanumeric characters. Include hyphens but omit spaces and special symbols. If fewer than 17 characters, enter the number from left to right and leave the unused boxes blank. LINE 8 Mark the appropriate box. LINE 9 Debit Date - Enter the date the taxpayer wants the payment electronically withdrawn, on or before April 15, 2021. NOTE: The account cannot include the name of any other person unless the taxpayer’s filing status on the return is “married filing jointly” or “married filing separately,” and the taxpayer’s spouse is the other name listed on the account. Some financial institutions do not permit the deposit of a joint refund in an individual account. The PA Department of Revenue is not responsible when a financial institution refuses a direct deposit. To be eligible for direct deposit or electronic funds withdrawal, taxpayers must provide proof of account owner-ship to the ERO. An acceptable proof of account ownership is a check, form, report or other statement generated by the financial institution that has the taxpayer’s name, RTN and DAN preprinted on it. For accounts payable through a financial institution other than the one at which the account is located, the taxpayer must provide a document, such as an account statement or identification card, showing the RTN of the bank or institution where the account is located. A deposit slip should not be used to verify RTN or DAN because it can contain internal routing numbers that are not part of the RTN. If there is any doubt about the correct RTN, the taxpayer should contact the financial institution for assistance. NOTE: Some financial institutions may not accept direct deposits into accounts payable through another bank or financial institution, including credit unions. 2 PA-8453 PREVIOUS PAGE SECTION III DECLARATION OF TAXPAYER LINE 10 All filers must mark one of the boxes. NOTE: Taxpayers may revoke the electronic funds withdrawal authorization by notifying the PA Department of Revenue in writing no later than two business days prior to the debit date. Written requests to revoke the electronic funds withdrawal must include the taxpayer’s name, address, Social Security number, RTN, DAN and payment amount. Written requests can be faxed to 717-772-9310 or emailed to [email protected] After a return has been prepared and before the return is transmitted, the taxpayer (or both taxpayers, if filing jointly) must verify the information on the return and sign and date the completed Form PA-8453. If you are responsible for the affairs of a minor, disabled person, or a decedent who could not prepare his or her own PA tax return, you must sign to file a valid tax return. The ERO must provide the taxpayer with a copy of this form. If the ERO makes changes to the electronic return after the Form PA-8453 has been signed by the taxpayer, but before it is transmitted, the ERO must have the taxpayer complete and sign a corrected Form PA-8453. SECTION IV DECLARATION OF ELECTRONIC RETURN ORIGINATOR (ERO) AND PREPARER The ERO must sign this form and keep it with the required attachments for three years. A preparer must sign the Form PA-8453 in the space for Preparer. If the preparer is also the ERO, do not complete the Preparer Section; instead, mark the box labeled “Mark if also paid preparer.” www.revenue.pa.gov RETURN TO FORM

About the Individual Income Tax
The IRS and most states collect a personal income tax, which is paid throughout the year via tax withholding or estimated income tax payments.
Most taxpayers are required to file a yearly income tax return in April to both the Internal Revenue Service and their state's revenue department, which will result in either a tax refund of excess withheld income or a tax payment if the withholding does not cover the taxpayer's entire liability. Every taxpayer's situation is different - please consult a CPA or licensed tax preparer to ensure that you are filing the correct tax forms!
