Q&A with the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue
Has the Department considered including a longer look back period on the e-SOA for sales and employer taxes?
While we appreciate the suggestion to provide more periods, we are currently concentrating on other enhancements to the current format such as adding new BTS taxes that were enacted in the 2016 budget. Furthermore, we are monitoring the new tools use, reviewing output, and fixing any problems discovered on the e-SOA. We are actively soliciting suggestions for additional communications that we should consider making available through e-TIDES.
