We encourage Boyer & Ritter clients to stay focused on submitting your information to us in advance of the usual April 15 deadline so we can process your tax return as soon as possible. We appreciate your efforts.

Items to note:

  • Any balance due on your 2020 federal and Pennsylvania tax return is now due May 17, 2021.
  • The following items are still due April 15:
    • 2021 first quarter Federal and PA estimates
    • Trust returns
    • Gift tax returns
    • Other tax payments and filings originally due April 15, including c-corporations
    • Other state tax returns
      • Some states have already pushed back their own tax return filing deadline, and we expect more states to do the same. Check the state tax agency website for any state tax deadline extensions.
