On March 21, 2020, the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue announced that the deadline for taxpayers to file their 2019 Personal Income Tax Returns is extended to July 15, 2020.  This means taxpayers will have an additional 90 days to file from the original deadline of April 15.  The Internal Revenue Service also extended the federal filing deadline to July 15, 2020.

The Department of Revenue will also waive penalties and interest on 2019 personal income tax payments through the new deadline of July 15, 2020.  This extension applies to both final 2019 tax returns and payments, and estimated payments for the first and second quarters of 2020.
