Tax Collection Statements
As we continue to navigate through the uncharted waters of the current COVID-19 event and take into consideration the Commonwealth's and Federal Government's decision to extend the due date for the filing of the 2019 year-end returns, Berkheimer has determined that it would be in the best interest of our clients, their taxpayers and tax professionals, to extend the local filing due date to July 15, 2020, matching the State Federal requirement.
As in years past, the local EIT filing deadline always aligned with the Federal and State filing deadlines. You are likely aware that the PA Department of Revenue announced this morning that Pennsylvania’s filing deadlines were indeed extended to July 15 like the Federal deadlines. For local EIT purposes, Keystone is accordingly extending the Individual filing deadlines to match the State and Federal date of July 15, 2020. We will not apply penalty and interest on Tax Year 2019 Final Return payments until after July 15.
