Keystone’s compliance team continues to issue delinquent earned income tax notices to taxpayers across Pennsylvania. State law requires Pennsylvania residents with earned income or net profits to report and pay the local earned income tax quarterly and file an annual return by April 15.
The PA Department of Revenue and the IRS announced that the income tax filing deadline for the final annual return (2020) is extended to May 17, 2021. The local earned income tax filing deadline is accordingly extended to match the State and Federal date of May 17, 2021.
If you received a delinquent earned income tax notice but you believe that you do not owe some or all of the unpaid tax because of unapplied tax credits, previously unreported tax withholdings or other extenuating circumstances, you will need to provide supporting documentation to substantiate your claim.
Pennsylvania residents who work in another state can file local tax returns online using Keystone’s e-file. Using e-file is fast and easy from your PC or any mobile device. In most cases, all you need is your W-2 showing income tax withholding.
