Pennsylvania Taxpayers Affected by Hurricane Ian Have More Time to File Tax Returns

10/06/2022

Harrisburg, PA — The Department of Revenue is extending the due dates to file various individual and business Pennsylvania tax returns for taxpayers in areas affected by Hurricane Ian. Importantly, taxpayers should know that this extension does not apply to tax payments.

This guidance follows an announcement from the IRS, which also extended the due dates for various individual and business tax returns on the federal level. As the IRS announced, the extension applies to any area designated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) as qualifying for individual or public assistance. The current list of eligible localities is available on the Help for victims of Hurricane Ian page on IRS.gov. As of today, the list includes Florida, South Carolina and North Carolina. The Pennsylvania extension applies to any taxpayer required to file a return in Pennsylvania who is located in one of these areas.

Here are other important details to keep in mind:

  • The tax relief for those affected by Hurricane Ian postpones various tax return filing deadlines that occurred starting on Sept. 23, 2022.

  • Affected individuals who had a valid extension to file their 2021 Pennsylvania Personal Income Tax return (PA-40) due to run out on October 17, 2022, will now have until Feb. 15, 2023, to file. Affected taxpayers seeking an extension on their 2021 personal income tax returns should email RA-BITDIRECTORFAX@pa.gov to request an extension. 

    • Although there is an extension for the filing of 2021 personal income tax returns, the Department of Revenue is reminding taxpayers that payments related to these 2021 returns are not eligible for an extension. These Pennsylvania income tax payments were due on April 18, 2022.

  • Businesses and estates/trusts with an original or extended due date also have additional time to file (see chart below):

Please include the name and address of the business where the tax records are located, and the 10-digit account ID of the taxpayer. Here are the due dates for RCT-101 filers:
