Who Must File a PA Tax Return?
If you are a PA resident, nonresident or a part-year PA resident, you must file a 2016 PA tax return if:
• You received total PA gross taxable income in excess of $33 during 2016, even if no tax is due with your PA return; and/or
• You incurred a loss from any transaction as an individual, sole proprietor, partner in a partnership or PA S corporation shareholder.
Social Security and qualified pension are NOT taxable income in Pennsylvania.
If you have other taxable income, such as dividends or interest, exceeding $33, you must file.
