Make an Inheritance Tax Payment

PA Resident Decedent

Inheritance Tax payments need to be directed to the Register of Wills for the county in which the decedent resided.  These payments are due upon the date of death and become delinquent after nine months. If inheritance tax is paid within three months of the decedent's death, a 5 percent discount is allowed.

Non-Resident Decedent

Inheritance Tax payments need to be directed to the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue. These payments are due upon the date of death and become delinquent after nine months. If inheritance tax is paid within three months of the decedent's death, a 5 percent discount is allowed.

Payments for non-resident decedents can be submitted online via myPATH.pa.gov or contact us at 717-425-2495, Ext: PAYPA (72972).

IMPORTANT: If you don’t have a myPATH account, setting up the account does take a few days because you will have to wait for your Access Letter to arrive. Refer to the myPATH User Guide for step by step instructions.
