Q&A with the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue

Clients have received notices reducing the underpayment of estimated tax penalty from their 2010 return by $1-$2. Will the Department set a parameter to not send notices on this issue for less than a small dollar amount?

Jun 19, 2012
The department has been working on determining why there is a difference in the calculation of underpayment penalties between the department’s computer and software generated forms.  We think we have identified the problem but have not yet had the opportunity to finalize the programming changes necessary due to the availability of personnel necessary for the testing of the changes.
