EARNED INCOME TAX FILING UPDATE

Although the PA Department of Revenue and the IRS have extended income tax filing deadlines for their 2020 final returns to May 17, 2021, Keystone Collections Group has just announced they will align the local filing deadline with the extended PA and IRS filing deadlines. Keystone Collections Group will accordingly not impose additional filing penalty and interest to taxpayers who file Local Earned Income Tax (EIT) returns by May 17, 2021. This extension does not apply to any other tax payments. Employer filing deadlines for reporting payroll withholdings are not changed. Similarly, quarterly estimates for 1st quarter 2021 have not been extended.
