Tax Filing Deadlines Extended to May 17, 2021

April 14, 2021

The PA Department of Revenue and the IRS announced that the income tax filing deadline for the final annual return (2020) is extended to May 17, 2021. The local earned income tax filing deadline is accordingly extended to match the State and Federal date of May 17, 2021.

That is, Keystone will not apply late-filing penalty and interest on tax year 2020 final returns filed between April 15, 2021 through May 17, 2021. Penalty and interest that already accrued prior to April 15, 2021 remains due. To file and pay online, please go to e-file. If you have questions or need assistance, please contact us.

This extension does not apply to any other tax payments. Employer filing deadlines for reporting payroll withholdings are not changed. Similarly, quarterly estimates for 1st quarter 2021 have not been extended.

The Earned Income Tax (EIT) is a 1% tax levied on the earned income and net profits of Franklin Park residents.  The tax is collected by Keystone Collection Group and then distributed equally between the Borough and North Allegheny School District.

PA Act 32 went into effect on January 1, 2012, which requires all employers in Pennsylvania, with a few exceptions, to withhold their employee's EIT through payroll deductions and to submit it to the proper Tax Collection District in Pennsylvania based upon the employee's Residency Certification Form.

The PSD (political subdivision) Code for the Borough of Franklin Park is 710702.
