Over the weekend, the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue announced an extension for 2019 Personal Income Tax Returns. This deadline has been extended by 90 days, making both the 2019 federal and Pennsylvania Personal Income Tax deadlines July 15, 2020.

In addition to the filing extension, the revenue bureau announced a waiver on penalties and interest on 2019 personal income tax payments through July 15, 2020 and on estimated tax payments for the first and second quarters of 2020. The Department of Revenue is strongly encouraging taxpayers who can to file their returns electronically so that they can be processed sooner. Filers who submit paper forms will experience delays as a result of state office closures.

Additional time is also being extended in certain cases for taxpayers wishing to appeal a tax assessment.
