Q:

Since the elimination of the Billing Notice and institution of the immediate assessment approach, what impact has the DOR observed on its ability to effectively address erroneous tax adjustments or those requiring additional information from the taxpayer outside of the appeals process? 

A:

Our analysis has found that the majority of these adjustments were the result of errors in the completion of the RCT-101. In an effort to address this issue, we have been reaching out to tax payers and practitioners through the Department’s Tax Update, by presenting at a variety of conferences, and most recently through an article in the Pennsylvania CPA Journal.
