Regarding penalty and interest on unpaid local wage tax in

This answer was rated:

Regarding penalty and interest on unpaid local wage tax in Pennsylvania. Once the actual back tax is paid, does the penalty and interest continue to accru in some fashion? Example: $10,000 owed in back years tax. Penalty and interest to date on that total $8,000. The tax in total of $10,000 is paid but only $2,000 of the interest and penalty is paid leaving $6,000 of that category yet to be paid. Does that interest and penalty remain at $6,000 until paid?

Robin D :

Hello and thank you for using Just Answer,
The interest on the tax calculation is based on the amount of time between the date the tax was due and the date the payment is received by the Department. There would be no more interest on the actual tax that was due and paid.

§ 4.10. Payment without prejudice.

A taxpayer has the right to pay all or a part of a tax claim made against him by the Department for the purpose of stopping the running of further interest, and the payment may not prejudice the right to pursue other administrative or judicial remedies provided by statute under section 1108(a) of the FC (72 P. S. § 1108(a)).
