PA Extends State Tax Return and Payment Deadlines for 2019

Posted · Add Comment

As is well known by now (see related posts below), the federal government has extended the due dates for filing your 2019 income tax returns, as well as any payments due, until July 15, 2020. While Pennsylvania law statutorily ties state returns for corporations to the federal extension, such is not the case for individuals, which requires definitive action by the Governor or through legislative mandate.

On March 22, 2020, the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue announced that the deadline for taxpayers to file their 2019 Pennsylvania personal income tax returns is also extended to July 15, 2020. This means that taxpayers will have an additional 90 days to file from the original April 15 deadline.

The Pennsylvania Department of Revenue will also waive penalties and interest on 2019 personal income tax payments through the new deadline of July 15, 2020. This extension applies to both final 2019 tax returns and payments, and estimated payments for the first and second quarters of 2020.
