PA Extends Personal Income Tax Deadline

Pennsylvania has extended its personal income tax deadline, to May 17, 2021 to coordinate with the extended federal tax return deadline. The extension is the result of delays caused by COVID-19. According to the PA Dept. of Revenue (PDOR) state law requires that the PA and federal tax due dates be tied together. PDOR will waive penalties and interest on returns and payments filed by the extended due date. Taxpayers who need more time to file may still request a 6-month extension to November 15, 2021, but this doesn’t extend the time to pay taxes. Regarding estimated income tax payments, these should continue to follow the normal filing schedule, including payments due April 15, 2021.
