Why is filed inheritance tax return response from the Department taking so long (4 - 6 months) now? In the past written response was received in about 30 days.

Dec 13, 2016
Statutorily, the department has 6 months from the date an Inheritance Tax return is filed with the Register of Wills to complete the review of the tax return and issue an assessment.  The current turn-around time for review is 4 ½ months from the date the return is filed. The Department makes every effort to review returns in a timely manner and we continue to identify ways to improve processing times.
