Pennsylvania has announced that the tax filing deadline for individual returns is May 17th.
Pennsylvania Filing Due Date: PA personal income tax returns are due by April 15 — or by the 15th day of the 4th month following the end of the taxable year (for fiscal year filers).
Extended Deadline with Pennsylvania Tax Extension: Pennsylvania offers a 6-month extension, which moves the filing deadline from April 15 to October 15.
Pennsylvania Tax Extension Form: To request a Pennsylvania extension, file Form REV-276 by the original due date of your return.
If you have an approved Federal tax extension (IRS Form 4868), you will automatically receive a Pennsylvania tax extension. In this case, you do not have to file PA Form REV-276 unless you owe Pennsylvania tax.
Pennsylvania Extension Payment Requirement: A tax extension gives you extra time to file. It does not give you more time to pay your Pennsylvania income tax. All state tax payments are due by the original deadline of the return. Any PA tax that hasn’t been paid by the proper due date will be subject to interest and penalties. You can pay the tax balance due for your Pennsylvania extension with Form REV-276, or pay electronically through the State’s e-Services Center: www.doreservices.state.pa.us
Pennsylvania Tax Extension Tips: You do not have to mail Form REV-276 if you make an electronic PA extension payment.
NOTE: You may not be able to pay your Pennsylvania extension electronically if you are a first-time PA filer.
