Q&A with the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue
Will the Department of Revenue publish on its website the names and docket numbers of Board of Finance and Revenue decisions that it appeals to the Commonwealth Court?
The Unified Judicial System’s website maintains a public portal that provides search capabilities by docket number as well as an up to date freely accessible court calendar and listing of opinions issued. Additionally, secure portal registration through the system’s website allows for the receipt of additional information related to cases filed with the Commonwealth Court.
