Q&A with the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue
What is the time span for the Department to complete an audit after receipt of information?
The timeframe for response varies throughout the tax season. While we experienced a delay this past tax season in reviewing correspondence, we have addressed that issue and are currently providing response to correspondence received within 2 weeks from the date received. Our goal for next tax season is to have correspondence reviewed within 8 weeks of receipt.
