Business and individuals who need to pay individual income tax, sales tax and employer tax can use Pennsylvania's TeleFile service, explains the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue. Taxpayers must have a touchtone phone in order to use the system.
Taxpayers can pay assessments, billing and late-file notice payments, malt beverage tax payments, corporation taxes, employer withholding taxes and public transportation assistant fund taxes using the TeleFile system. Sales and use tax, unstampable little cigar tax and vehicle rental tax payments are also accepted through the TeleFile system, the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue explains.
Pennsylvania's TeleFile system is one of three ways Pennsylvania residents and business can electronically file tax returns. The other two electronic filing systems are the Pennsylvania e-file system, which works in conjunction with the IRS e-file system, and padirectfile, reports the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue.
When residents file tax returns with TeleFile or padirectfile, the system immediately provides a confirmation number for the filing. Residents also have the option to file now and pay later by having tax payments deducted electronically from checking or savings accounts. This option allows residents to determine the dates they would like to pay their taxes, so residents can pay when they file or delay their payments until the due date, says the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue.
