Commissioned (not hourly or salaried) employees can use this form to apply for a refund on Wage Tax. You can also use our online refund forms, for faster and more secure processing. This step-by-step video tutorial will walk you through the process of submitting a Wage Tax refund through Philadelphia Tax Center.

Any claim for refund must be filed within three years from the date the tax was paid or due, whichever date is later. Only non-resident employees are eligible for a refund based on work performed outside of Philadelphia.
