The Department of Revenue has received several questions from business owners who are asking whether they are required to file employer withholding and sales tax returns even if they had no employees or no sales during a filing period due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Business owners should continue to file returns even if their business did not have employees or did not have sales. These zero balance returns should be filed by the taxpayer’s normal filing deadline.

New on PA Tax Talk:

The Department of Revenue has been recognized with a 2020 Government Innovation Award for its work on "nudge" tax delinquency notices. These notices were created through a collaborative project between Revenue staff and a team of social behavioral scientists from the MITRE Corporation. The goal of the project was to study taxpayer behavior and redesign the department's tax delinquency notices, making them easier for taxpayers to understand and more likely to result in a response.

DYK? A person with #COVID19 can spread it for 2-14 days without showing any symptoms—and according to the CDC, asymptomatic cases are common. Since you may not know you have COVID-19, wear a mask, wash your hands and keep your distance to help #stopthespread.

One of the best and easiest ways to protect others during the COVID pandemic is to stay home if you aren’t feeling well — even if your symptoms are mild.

If you must leave home, wear a mask indoors and outdoors and keep your physical distance from others.

Yesterday we announced four new COVID-19 mitigation efforts in Pennsylvania. Here’s what you need to know.

1️⃣ Masks are still required indoors and outdoors.

Masks are required indoors anytime you’re with people outside of your household — even if you’re socially distant.

This applies to all indoor facilities. It also applies if you have people in your home not part of your household.

2️⃣ Anyone who visits Pennsylvania from another state is now required to get tested within 72 hours before entering PA.

Pennsylvanians who travel to other states must follow the same rules when coming home.

This doesn’t apply to those who commute to/from another state for work or medical treatment.

3️⃣ The Pennsylvania Department of Health issued a memo to acute care hospital CEOs/CMOs outlining opportunities to work collaboratively, and expectations if they don’t, to ensure health systems can provide care to Pennsylvanians who need it.

4️⃣ The Pennsylvania Department of Health and the Pennsylvania Department of Education issued recommendations for colleges and universities to develop and implement a testing strategy to prevent outbreaks when students return to campus from the holiday break.
