Pennsylvania has made the following changes for the 2021 tax year:
- Payments made after December 31, 2021 equal to or greater than $15,000 must be made electronically. Payments not made electronically will be subject to a penalty equal to 3% of the payment amount not to exceed $500.
- For tax years beginning after December 31, 2020, farmers are allowed to defer income received from disaster-related crop insurance payments for one year, mirroring federal law.
- The Pennsylvania Department of Revenue and the Pennsylvania Health Insurance Exchange Authority, also known as Pennie, have teamed up to gather information from residents who do not have health insurance coverage, making it easier to apply and enroll in comprehensive health
insurance through Pennie. The REV-1882 Health Insurance Coverage Information Request form was developed to connect uninsured Pennsylvanians with information regarding their eligibility to enroll in health insurance coverage through Pennie.
The state income tax rate for 2021 is 3.07 percent (0.0307).
