Q&A with the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue
Regarding the Revenue Modernization Project, is the Department able to access all closed and open ledgers?
Regarding the Revenue Modernization Project, is the Department able to access all closed and open ledgers? We were told before the shutdown in March 2013 that the Department was not sure they would have access after the shutdown so we advised clients to order closed ledgers before the shutdown. Are there any glitches with the new system we should be aware of?
As part of the planning of Corporation Tax notices for the ITS, there was a Department decision to discontinue providing open/closed ledgers. New ITS notices will provide all pertinent transaction information.
While the Department does have a copy of data from the Corporation Tax legacy systems, this does not mean the Department can or will provide closed and open ledgers based upon that data. Going forward, information available on the open and closed ledger will be provided on new notices generated from the ITS.
