Who Must File a Pennsylvania Tax Return ??

Who must file a personal income tax return? If you are a  Pennsylvania resident, nonresident or a part-year PA resident, you must file a  PA tax return if:
• You received total PA gross taxable income in excess of $33, even if no tax is due with your PA return; and/or
• You incurred a loss from any transaction as an individual, sole proprietor, partner in a partnership or PA S corporation shareholder.

PA law does not exempt a minor from the above requirements to file a PA tax return even if claimed as a dependent on a federal return.

The executor, administrator, or other person responsible for the affairs of a decedent must file a PA tax return if the decedent met the above requirements.

Pennsylvania taxes eight classes of income: (1) compensation; (2) net profits from the operation of a business, profession or farm; (3) net gains or income less net losses from dispositions of property; (4) net gains or income from rents, royalties, patents and copyrights; (5) dividends; (6) interest; (7) gambling winnings (except Pennsylvania Lottery winnings); and (8) net gains or income derived through estates or trusts.
