Paying Delinquent Sales Tax

All businesses registered to collect and pay the state sales tax must file a sales tax return (PA-3) each reporting period, even if you don’t owe tax during the period.

If your business did not file a sales tax return or filed without making the necessary payment, you may receive a “Delinquent Tax Returns” notice from the department.

If you receive a Delinquent Tax Return notice, you must respond within thirty (30) days to the address below otherwise the department can impose estimated tax based on the information provided to the department.
