HARRISBURG – The PA Department of Revenue says with the deadline to file 2019 PA personal income tax returns on July 15, they are encouraging taxpayers who need help to call the department’s Customer Experience Center. It’s available by calling 717-787-8201 and is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays through Wednesday, July 15 so agents can assist taxpayers who need help with their returns. This year, taxpayers were granted an additional 90 days to file their 2019 returns due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition to the assistance over the phone, the Revenue Department also offers help through its Online Customer Service Center which provides answers to specific questions about 2019 personal income tax returns and the department’s e-filing options. As a reminder, tax returns that are filed electronically are processed faster, leading to taxpayers receiving their refunds sooner. Pennsylvanians can file their state tax returns by using Padirectfile, a free, secure, state-only electronic income tax filing system. For more information or to begin filing, visit Padirectfile.
