One Month Deferral for Pa. Personal Income Tax Returns

On March 18, the Pa. Department of Revenue announced that it would extend the deadline for filing 2020 personal income tax returns, and paying any tax owed, from April 15 to May 17. The Internal Revenue Service had announced a similar decision on March 17.

Unlike the IRS announcement, the Dept. of Revenue press release refers to “taxpayers” and not “individuals,” and so the announced extension should apply to estates and trusts as well as individuals. (The reference in the announcement to “personal income tax” does not exclude estates and trusts because they are included in Article III of the Tax Reform Code of 1971, which is titled “Personal Income Tax.”)
