Extension of Filing Deadline Applies to Trusts/Estates, Partnerships and S Corporations

Due Date for Certain Corporation Returns Also Being Moved

Harrisburg, PA — Governor Tom Wolf recently signed into law Act 10 of 2020, which extends the due date of certain personal income tax returns and payments, as well as waiving certain other income tax dates. The Department of Revenue also announced it is extending the due date for corporations with tax returns due in May to August 14, 2020.

Act 10 of 2020 specifically provides for the extension of the following tax filing deadlines:

• Extends the deadline to July 15, 2020 for declarations of estimated personal income tax.

• Extends the deadline to July 15, 2020 for payments of estimated personal income tax.

• Extends the deadline to July 15, 2020 for the filing of informational returns related to Pennsylvania S corporations and partnerships (Form PA-20S/PA-65), and estates and trusts (Form PA-41).

• Extends the filing date by three months for certain information returns (1099-R, 1099-MISC, and W2-G).

In addition to the due dates changed by Act 10 of 2020, the federal due date for calendar year corporation returns that is normally April 15 has been moved back to July 15. As a result, the due date for corporations with Pennsylvania returns and payments due on May 15 is now August 14. There is no extension for the June 15 estimated payment due date for corporations.

Extension of Deadline for Local Taxes
Act 10 of 2020 also extends the deadline for the filing of 2019 local tax returns and payments to July 15, 2020. The Department of Revenue does not administer local taxes, so additional questions should be directed to the taxpayer’s local taxing office.
