Q&A with the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue
Estimated assessments are not appealable and we thought once the missing information is received then assessments would be dropped.
By statute, estimated liabilities should be removed within 90 days of receipt of a complete report.
What is the correct procedure, however, if the estimated assessments have already been turned over to an outside collection agency that does not want the missing information, just insists the liability is due?
Taxpayers should forward the missing information to the collection agency to forward to the department. If the agency does not accept the information, they should ask to speak to a supervisor at the agency. This is the same treatment we have for our RECA's in our District Offices.
