The ProSeries program is saying that the Local Tax Return will not be finalized until February 20, 2020 for the State of Pennsylvania. Does anyone know why? This is going to be a huge burden in that I will need to prepare all local returns by hand. That will be several hundred returns. Very disappointing. Especially since we, as tax prepares, are responsible for reviewing all information that is on the tax return prior to filing.
Intuit's response is probably that they are going to receive the final forms from PA late so they can't provide them any earlier than that. The best suggestion I can give you is round up every other PA preparer and tell them to keep hounding Intuit until they get tired of hearing from you and move the date up earlier on the calendar.
