Pennsylvania Department of Revenue extends Voluntary Compliance Program for Retailers with Inventory in Pennsylvania
May 27, 2021
The Pennsylvania Department of Revenue has extended its Voluntary Compliance Program (“Program”) for any business that has inventory or stores property in Pennsylvania but is not registered to collect and pay Pennsylvania taxes. The Program, which runs through June 8, 2021, offers a limited lookback period and penalty relief when the business becomes compliant.
Taxpayers that choose to participate in the Program will not be liable for taxes owed prior to January 1, 2019. Taxpayers who participate in the Program also will be given penalty relief for any non-compliance for past due tax returns that were not filed and taxes that were not paid. If your company has inventory or stores property in Pennsylvania but is not registered to pay or collect Pennsylvania taxes, please contact one of our SALT attorneys (Paul R. Morcom, 717-237-5364; Sharon Paxton, 717-237-5393; or Adam Koelsch, 717-237-5305) to determine if the Program is right for your company.
