The recently enacted Pennsylvania House bill, HB 1198, contains the following noteworthy items:
- The 1% sales tax discount for timely filing will be maxed out at $25 per month.
- PA lottery winnings are now taxable for PA. This is effective 1-1-16, so anyone who won earlier this year may need to pay some estimates. Going forward, withholding will occur.
- Downloads are now subject to sales tax effective August 1. Therefore, you might want to download your e-books and your Pokémon software before Monday!
- There is a new amnesty program if you have any delinquent filings and lots of cigarette taxes.
More detail is provided on the PA Department of Revenue website.
