Q&A with the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue
When a personal income tax return is audited, (unreimbursed business expenses), does the Department respond to the taxpayer/practitioner indicating that the information has been received?
The Department does not currently have a mechanism in place to provide a response when correspondence is received; however, we are currently researching ways to provide this service to taxpayers in the future.
