Dear Client,

As the COVID-19 pandemic spreads, the guidelines for businesses continues to change. Our highest priority is the health and safety of our clients and employees. Although accounting firms have been given permission to reopen, our physical offices will remain closed. Our employees will continue to work remotely. Please do not place ANY of your tax documents in our outside drop boxes or mail slots. If you need to get tax documents to us, please contact your preparer to make arrangements to get your information to us electronically.

If you are unable to reach your preparer by email, please go to http://www.troutcpa.com/contact and leave a message.

We understand this is a difficult time for all, and we appreciate your continued trust and understanding.

Thank you,

PA Extends Personal Income Tax Return Filing Deadline to July 15, 2020

The Department of Revenue today announced the deadline for taxpayers to file their 2019 Pennsylvania personal income tax returns is extended to July 15, 2020. 

Similar to Federal, Pennsylvania is waving interest and penalties on payments through the July 15, 2020 extended deadline.

Pennsylvania's first and second quarter estimates for 2020 have also been extended to July 15, 2020. As of now, second quarter federal estimates are still due June 15, 2020. Currently, 2019 County Income Taxes and 1st quarter estimates are still due April 15, 2020. We anticipate the counties will extend their deadlines to match Pennsylvania.
