The Local Earned Income Tax filing deadline has NOT been extended beyond the April 15, 2021 due date. While the PA Department of Revenue and the IRS announced that income tax filing deadlines for their 2020 final returns are extended to May 17, 2021, no such change has been made for the Local Earned Income Tax Filing deadline. Keystone will continue to monitor announcements from the Governor’s Office, the State Legislature and the Department of Community and Economic Development regarding any potential change in the filing deadline. Absent notice from at least one of these entities, the April 15th deadline cannot change. Returns filed after this date will be assessed statutory penalty and interest regardless of extensions by the PA Department of Revenue and the IRS. However, Keystone will waive late fees for final returns submitted after April 15, 2021 through May 17, 2021.
