Form REV-276

Pennsylvania honors federal tax extensions if you owe no state tax. If you got a federal extension and you do not owe Pennsylvania tax, then you do not have to file any state or federal extension form to get an automatic 6-month extension of time to file your state return. The extended filing deadline is October 15, 2015.

If you do owe state tax or you did not file a federal extension, you can get an automatic 6-month extension of time to file a state return by filing PA Form REV-276. If you owe state tax, you must still pay the amount due by April 15, 2015 or you will begin to accrue penalties and interest on the unpaid amount. Furthermore, if you owe state tax, you must include a payment with your Form REV-276. You can also file for an extension and pay your taxes online with the PA Department of Revenue agency website.
