PA Announces New myPATH Online Services Portal
On November 30, 2022, the Pennsylvania (PA) Department of Revenue rolled out a new online portal, my Pennsylvania Tax Hub, or myPATH, to consolidate and replace its other online services. This new portal will replace eTIDES as the department’s method of filing returns, making payments, managing accounts, and interacting with the department.
myPATH will allow a business taxpayer to access all their tax accounts and licenses opened with the PA Department of Revenue. myPATH has a two-factor authentication sign in process, which means that business owners, business employees, and tax professionals must each have their own unique login to access myPATH.
Business owners who have not done so already should register for a myPATH profile to access their business accounts and register as the primary user of those accounts. Once registered, business owners can assign secondary logins to employees and authorize third party tax professionals.
For more information on how to register to myPATH as a business owner and access your business accounts, please visit the PA Department of Revenue’s website at http://revenue.pa.gov/OnlineServices/mypath/Pages/How-to-Enroll.aspx
The PA Department of Revenue has also published a timeline of the phase out that can be found by visiting https://www.etides.state.pa.us/Instructions/RetirementTimeline.htm
If you require further assistance and support for myPATH, there are a series of FAQs, and video tutorials that can be found at http://revenue.pa.gov/OnlineServices/mypath/Pages/default.aspx
