Who is Excluded from Preparing an Annual Return on PALite?
When filing taxes with one or more of the above collectors, you are eligible to use PALite unless:
  • You lived at more than three Pennsylvania addresses during the tax year.
  • You moved at some time during the tax year AND have multiple W-2 forms from the same employer.
  • You had earnings from out of state or have wages from a state other than PA reported in box 15 of a W-2 form.
  • You have a W-2 form with local withholdings reported for Philadelphia (sometimes noted as Phila, PHI, or 51) in box 20.
Spouses must both be eligible if they intend to file on the same return. Eligible taxpayers should use one of the buttons above to continue.

Do All PALite Users File Online?
Qualified taxpayers will be able to submit their return online. Others will be required to print the completed return and mail it to the local tax collector with supporting documentation. PALite will recommend the best way to complete your filing.
