|Shortly, I plan to introduce legislation to clarify various provisions of the Local Tax Enabling Act (Act 32 of 2008) in conjunction with changes I was able to have signed into law as Act 150 of 2016. I plan to introduce these proposed changes in three separate bills:
While admittedly technical, these changes are nonetheless important for taxpayers and employers – especially farmers. I hope you will consider cosponsoring one or more.
- Add safe harbor estimated tax provisions for all taxpayers (i.e., last year’s tax)
- Eliminate the need to file “zero annual local tax returns” (i.e., when no taxes are owed)
- Clarify whether local tax collections agencies may require e-filings by employers filing quarterly, rather than standard DCED forms
