Have You Filed Your Gross Receipts Tax Refund Claims?


If your company pays Pennsylvania Gross Receipts Tax and you have not recently filed assessment appeals and/or protective refund claims, you should consider doing so immediately! Pending court appeals and a recent Pennsylvania Department of Revenue bulletin highlight a number of issues that you should be keeping in your sights and which you should be addressing through assessment appeals and refund petitions.

Subject to certain limited exceptions, Pennsylvania imposes tax on gross receipts “received” from, among other things:

* Telephone messages transmitted wholly within the state

* Telephone messages transmitted in interstate commerce, originating or terminating in PA and billed to a PA service address

* Mobile telecommunications service messages sourced to PA under 4 U.S.C. § 117

* Sales of electric energy within PA
