PA DOR Announces Online Application and Renewal for Sales Tax Exemptions

The Pennsylvania Department of Revenue (PA DOR) has unveiled an online option for non-profits to apply for and renew their sales tax exemptions. Non-profits will be able to use the myPATH online system instead of the paper application (REV-72). This change will be welcomed by non-profits and practitioners alike, as the traditional REV-72 is a cumbersome application that requires significant amounts of supporting documentation. The online system will also allow non-profits to track the status of their application in real-time and should reduce processing and wait times.

The change in the application process is part of the Commonwealth’s effort (attempt) to improve licensing and permitting procedures for taxpayers. Pennsylvania began its migration from e-TIDES to myPATH last year to improve online tax systems and provide more utility to taxpayers. The myPATH system is based on software used by most states and it provides consistencies to taxpayers and tax practitioners.

The full press release from the Department can be viewed here. The press release touts improvements in efficiency by the DOR in processing returns and even mentions progress in the form of decreased wait times within the DOR call center. Taxpayers with experience seeking assistance by calling the PA DOR may raise an eyebrow at that last claim.
