Harrisburg, Pa. — Revenue Secretary Dan Hassell and tax experts from the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue this week kicked off its annual series of Tax Seminars — events to inform tax professionals about new state tax laws and initiatives. This is the 36th year the department has led the one-day seminars.
“These seminars are a great opportunity for tax professionals to hear first-hand from experienced professionals about new initiatives and changes to state tax laws, policies, and procedures in an easy and understandable way,” Secretary Hassell said. “It is also the priority of the department to improve communications with taxpayers and the tax professional community, and always appreciate the feedback and input we receive during these seminars.”
The seminars will feature discussions on personal income tax, sales and use tax, corporate taxes, identity theft protection, and information on using the department’s website to receive electronic correspondences, file tax returns, and pay state taxes. They are part of the department’s work to further Governor Wolf’s goal of creating “Government that Works.”
Department of Revenue staff will also speak about online marketplace sales and other legislative changes brought about with the passage of Act 43 of 2017, the effect of federal tax reform on Pennsylvania’s tax structure, and the implementation of the department’s new modernized tax system.
The next tax seminar is scheduled for September 18 in Monroe County, followed by 12 additional seminars that will continue through the end of the year in various locations throughout Pennsylvania, including Center Valley (Lehigh County), Altoona (Blair County), State College (Centre County), Harrisburg (Dauphin County), Williamsport (Lycoming County),Wyomissing (Berks County), Springfield (Delaware County), Gettysburg (Adams County), Cranberry Township (Butler County), Wilkes-Barre (Luzerne County), Aston (Delaware County), and Abington (Montgomery County).
