2018 Filing Season
Pennsylvania’s tax filing season opens today. The Department of Revenue expects to process more than 6.4 million individual tax returns this year. The deadline to file a return will be April 17, 2018.
This is also a reminder that the Internal Revenue Service will not open its tax filing season until Jan. 29, 2018. As a result, those using tax preparation software to file their federal and state returns should know that their state returns will not be processed until the IRS opens its filing season.

As a result of feedback received by the Department, we have revised the Schedules C & UE Filing Tips:
Additionally, for the 2018 tax season, the Department has made changes relative to our review of Schedule C expenses in an effort to reduce the number of returns suspended and to allow for a more timely processing of both the return and any related refund. These changes will also allow for better coordination with other enforcement efforts, such as the review of Schedule C revenues.
