• Please thoroughly review and consider all of the steps below before initiating an automated payroll deduction. PT-PAC can only accept donations from current APTA members.

    1. For the APTA member who owns/co-owns the company, the first step is to complete the employer authorization payroll deduction form (.pdf) and return it to APTA.
    2. After receiving the employer authorization payroll deduction form, the designated company representative must provide an invoice to APTA of annual payroll deduction services the corporation will provide. This should include actual costs of administrative staff time, creation of deduction code through third party payroll vendor, adding individuals to PT- PAC payroll deduction system, checks made out to PT-PAC, value of the lists of employees the corporations provide, postage, etc.

      The invoice should be sent to:
      Via Mail: Michael Matlack, Director of Congressional Affairs
      1111 North Fairfax Street, Alexandria, VA 22314,
      Via Email: michaelmatlack@apta.org
    3. Corporations electing to permit payroll deduction will provide APTA (Michael Matlack) the names of all their employees who are PTs or PTAs. Using this information, APTA will identify employees who are also APTA members. APTA will contact these employees and invite them to participate in the payroll deduction plan. The solicitation will inform the employee of PT-PAC's political purpose and of the employee's right to refuse to contribute without incurring any reprisal.
    4. Once the company receives advance payment for payroll deduction services from APTA, APTA member employees may make donations to PT-PAC through the company's payroll deduction system.
    5. The designated company payroll contact will provide Michael Matlack with all individual's names and the contribution amount per paycheck before commencing the payroll deduction plan. APTA staff must verify that all employees permitting payroll deduction contributions are APTA members. See Employee Payroll Deduction Authorization Form (.pdf)
    6. The corporation will remit a single check to PT-PAC that represents the entire aggregate amount of contributions made by all employees along with a document providing the names of each individual contributor and the amount of each individual's contribution. The corporation will then transmit this check within ten days of making the authorized deductions.
