Submitting Payroll

Each participating employer is required to certify and submit payroll information electronically at the end of each pay period, in accordance with Code of Maryland Regulations, (COMAR) Payroll is easily reported online with our secure Employer Payroll Data Reporting (EPDR) Application

SRA Employer Payroll Data Reporting Application

In order to use the “EPDR” application, SRA must establish the employer’s personnel as authorized users. Prior to the start of each fiscal year, the contact information (contact person name, email, and phone #) of all the personnel who are authorized to perform the payroll reporting activities must be communicated to SRA. To prevent unauthorized access, prior fiscal year’s contact information will not be carried forward to the next fiscal year. SRA will update each fiscal year’s information to the “EPDR” database.

“EPDR” allows your Agency’s authorized users to simultaneously use the application in real time. The application includes various validations and error messaging features to aid users in navigating the screens and improving data integrity.

More information on using our secure website is available to authorized users online and by request. If you need additional assistance please contact SRA at the EPDR hotline number 410-625-5531.
