Q&A with the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue
Would the DOR consider bringing back something akin to the 15 or 30 day letters that used to be sent out to request information for the old settlement process prior to making adjustments and assessments?
These letters used were previously produced leading up to a Taxing Officer’s settlement of a return. Currently, the Department is not considering a return to this approach.
