A business return is not marked with an extension “Y” box and there was a federal extension filed, but PA system seems to automatically send out a Notice of Assessment for penalties. The Notice states that to object to the assessment that a petition must be filed with the Board of Appeals. Q:
Is there some administrative way to contact the Department and send them the federal extension without filing an official appeal? A:
When processing the report the absence of this indicator tells the system that the taxpayer does not have an extension. Requests for the Bureau of Corporation Taxes to consider the striking of all or part of the penalty can be sent to the Resource Account at RA-PANOTICEOFADJUSTMENT@pa.gov
, where it will be addressed in the order it is received. However, this action will not extend the appeal rights.
