Due to ongoing issues related to COVID-19, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the PA Department of Revenue extended the 2020 Tax Year Annual Filing Deadline from April 15, 2021 to May 17, 2021 for federal and state filings. However, the PA Local Earned Income Tax deadline remained unchanged.
In an effort to change the deadline, the PA House passed HB 766. However, the bill needs to be approved by the Senate, which does not reconvene until April 19, 2021.
To be consistent with State and Federal tax return deadlines, the Chester County Tax Collection Committee has agreed to intermittently authorize the waiver of penalty and interest related to the 2020 Local Earned Income Tax for returns filed on or before May 17, 2021.
