COVID-19 Update Alert

Following the announcements by the IRS and the PA Dept. of Revenue, YATB has extended the filing deadline for 2019 Individual Earned Income Tax Returns to July 15, 2020.

YATB will also waive penalties and interest on 2019 earned income tax payments through the new deadline of July 15, 2020. This extension applies to both 2019 Individual tax returns and payments, and estimated payments for the first quarter of 2020.

EMPLOYERS: At the present time there are no extensions for Employer 1st Quarter 2020 Earned Income Tax Returns or payment of the 1st Quarter 2020 tax withheld from employees.
