Pennsylvania Businesses to Benefit from Waiver for Prepayments of Sales Tax

first_img April 14, 2020 Pennsylvania Businesses to Benefit from Waiver for Prepayments of Sales Tax Economy,  Press Release As part of the effort to help businesses affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, Governor Tom Wolf today announced businesses that collect Pennsylvania sales tax will not have to make Accelerated Sales Tax (AST) prepayments over the next three months. That means businesses that normally have a monthly prepayment requirement will not be charged penalties for missing the prepayment deadline during this three-month period.“The spread of COVID-19 has put a tremendous strain on many businesses throughout the commonwealth that collect Pennsylvania sales tax,” Governor Wolf said. “Waiving this prepayment requirement will provide support to our businesses at a time when they are doing their part to help us prevent the spread of the virus.”Under normal circumstances, certain business taxpayers are required to make monthly sales tax prepayments to the commonwealth if their actual tax liability is more than $25,000 during the third quarter of the preceding year. The Department of Revenue is waiving the prepayment requirement in April, May and June of 2020 to help business owners with cash flow during the COVID-19 pandemic.“We will continue to work with Governor Wolf and members of his administration to consider other steps that we can take to help the business community,” Revenue Secretary Dan Hassell said. “It’s important that we do everything that we can to help businesses during this unprecedented health crisis.”Under this new scenario, the department is asking businesses to simply remit the sales tax that they collected during the prior month. The due dates to remit sales tax will be April 20, May 20 and June 22, which follows the standard due dates for monthly filers who have no prepayment requirement.Visit the Department of Revenue’s page on Accelerated Sales Tax Prepayments for more information on prepayments.All businesses are encouraged to remit online using e-TIDES, the department’s online tax system for businesses. Find the REV-819 on the department’s website for a schedule of return and prepayment due dates.Taxpayer Service and AssistanceIn addition to the waiver of Accelerated Sales Tax prepayments, the Department of Revenue also has:Extended the deadline to file state personal income tax returns by 90 days.

Jorge Messi and Bartomeu’s meeting reportedly lasted around 90 minutes and ended in with no real conclusion, though the club president asked Jorge to ask his son to reconsider. Now TyC Sport reports that there is a “90 per cent chance that Messi will stay at Barcelona” with a definitive decision expected today. Lionel Messi could now stay at Barcelona, according to various reports in Argentina, after his father met with club president Josep Maria Bartomeu. Messi’s father Jorge, who is also his agent, met with Bartomeu on Wednesday after his son last month told the club of his intention to leave on a free this summer after activating a clause in his contract. Barcelona disputed the claim, saying the specific clause expired on June 10 despite the delays to the season, a position then backed by LaLiga, meaning paying his €700million (£632m) release clause is the only way to trigger a transfer.Advertisementcenter_img Loading… They suggest this is a new development following showdown talks between the player’s father and agent Jorge and Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu.The Argentine outlet added: “Messi is seriously evaluating staying in Barcelona until 2021 and leaving through the front door at the end of his contract.”Interestingly, the latest turn in the Messi transfer saga comes as a shock after his father said it was “difficult” for him to stay.Read Also:Barcelona board at war over Lionel Messi sale, asking price“The future at Barça, difficult, difficult.
