PSD Codes (political subdivision codes) are six-digit numbers that uniquely identify each municipality—township, borough, city—in Pennsylvania.
PSD Codes are used infrequently and are not displayed in the Customer and Employee Detail interfaces like GEO Codes and School Districts are. Rather than finding a PSD code through an Employee Detail or Customer Detail address drop-down menu, the application of a PSD code is performed through an Avionté AQ workaround, thus this article appears in this AQ section.
Apply a PSD Code
Through the use of an Advanced Query, this process applies a PSD code to an address, however, the code will NOT display in the Employee or Customer Detail page. Once the PSD is made available through the process below, the code will only be displayed in the Get and Set Worksite PSD Codes AQ.
