Withholding Forms and Information

To deliver forms in a more cost-effective manner, the City of Perrysburg Income Tax Division has discontinued mass-mailing of withholding booklets to employers. Fillable PDF forms are available online and may be downloaded or printed from this webpage. See below for Form PW-1 (monthly and/or quarterly vouchers) and Form PW-3 (annual W-2 reconciliation).

The City of Perrysburg's withholding income tax rate remains at 1.5%. The rate for employer courtesy withholding for Perrysburg residents who are working in another taxing municipality is .75%. However, employers withholding as a courtesy for residents working in a township or other non-taxing work district should withhold at the full rate of 1.5%.

Withholding forms can be found by clicking here.

Employer Withholding Validation Software

The following is a link to the Social Security Administration's website. Please download their free "AccuWage" software to test the accuracy of the formatting of your wage file prior to submission.

Social Security Administration Website

After verifying that the EFW2 file passes the Social Security Administration's AccuWage test, please test the wage file using the free MITS "W2Verify" software to test the RS record defined by the Social Security Administration for use by municipalities. The Social Security AccuWage software does not test the RS record.

For additional information, please see the EFW2 Instructions Form.

The EFW2 file should be verified using both software programs before submission.
