HARRISBURG – The deadline to file Pennsylvania personal income tax returns with the Department of Revenue for 2019 has been extended by 90 days to July 15, according to State Senator Doug Mastriano (R-33).
The new deadline mirrors the decision made by the Internal Revenue Service, which recently extended the federal tax-filing deadline by 90 days.
“Pushing back this deadline will help Pennsylvanians as they cope with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic,” said Mastriano. “State officials are cognizant of how this health crisis is impacting families, and we are committed to working together for the betterment of our state.”
All penalties and interest on 2019 personal income tax payments will also be waived through the new deadline. Taxpayers who make quarterly estimated payments will also receive an extension. Both first and second quarter payments will be due July 15.
Taxpayers are encouraged to file returns electronically to enable the Department of Revenue to process returns while state offices are closed. Tax returns can be filed for free online through the PAdirectfile system.
Free tax forms and instructions are also available at www.revenue.pa.gov.
