Payroll Department


Welcome to the web site for Payroll, a division of the Financial Affairs Department at Saint Joseph’s University. The mission of the Payroll Department is to deliver timely and accurate compensation as well as knowledgeable information to all of our customers. 



Beginning with the first (1st) quarter of 2012, all employers in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania will be required to begin to withhold earned income tax from their employees’ pay at a rate equal to either the tax rate due to the employee's place of residence or the tax rate due to his/her place of employment, whichever is higher. This change will help eliminate the need for employees to make quarterly payments for the difference between the tax withheld and the tax due.

Over the next few days you will receive a detailed notice of the tax changes, along with instructions on how to complete the Residency Certification Form.  The University is required to have this form on file for every employee.    When completing this form, a physical address must be provided, P.O. boxes and Rural Route addresses are not acceptable.   If you would prefer to download the form and instructions, it can be found here:
