General Instructions

Pennsylvania individual income tax returns are due by the 15th day of the 4th month after the close of the tax year. For calendar year filers, this date is April 15 in most years. If you cannot file on time, you can get a 6-month Pennsylvania tax extension.

If you have a valid Federal tax extension (IRS Form 4868) and you owe zero state income tax, Pennsylvania will automatically grant you the same tax extension for your state return. In this case, you do not need to file a separate application with the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue.

If you don’t have a Federal extension, you can specifically request a state extension using Pennsylvania Form REV-276 (Application for Extension of Time to File). Form REV-276 must be filed by the original due date of your return (usually April 15) for your extension to be approved.

A tax extension only gives you more time to file, not to pay. If you owe Pennsylvania income tax, it must be paid by the original deadline (usually April 15) or penalties will apply. You can include a Pennsylvania extension payment with Form REV-276, or you can pay electronically via Pennsylvania’s e-Services Center:

NOTE: If you make the extension payment electronically, do not mail Form REV-286.

NOTE: You cannot file an extension electronically if you owe zero Pennsylvania tax — instead, you must file Form REV-276 or obtain a Federal extension.
