Pennsylvania Provides Additional Extensions for Many Tax Returns

by the Tax Group
September 28, 2020

In light of the ongoing pandemic, the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue announced that the due dates for many Pennsylvania individual and business tax returns have been extended.


Importantly, these additional extensions do not extend any payment deadlines. Likewise, the extended due dates apply only to those taxpayers who timely requested an extension prior to the initially extended due date. For example, if an individual timely (i.e., before July 15, 2020) requested an extension to file his or her 2019 PIT return, his or her 2019 PIT return now is due on January 15, 2021, instead of October 15, 2020. However, if no such extension was requested, the due date was July 15, 2020.
