Can your office help me prepare the inheritance tax form?

No. This office functions only as an agent for the Department of Revenue in the filing and processing of Inheritance Tax Returns/payments. The staff is not trained to give advice concerning the correct completion of the return or calculation of the tax.

The Inheritance Tax Booklet with instructions is available in our office or you may download forms/instructions from the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue's website Inheritance Tax Department. For other frequently asked questions regarding Inheritance Tax, see our Inheritance Tax page.

If you have questions that are not answered in the instruction booklet, you should contact an attorney or an accountant for assistance. You may also phone the Department of Revenue's Information Line at 717-787-8327.
