The Tax Forgiveness Credit allows eligible taxpayers to reduce all or part of their Pennsylvania tax liability. Tax forgiveness gives a state tax refund to some taxpayers and forgives some taxpayers of their liabilities even if they haven't paid their Pennsylvania income tax.
You can receive a Pennsylvania Tax Forgiveness Credit for up to 100% of your income tax on PA-40 Line 12. The amount of credit you qualify for depends on your filing status and your income level. For more information on the amount you can receive, view the full Eligibility Income Tables .
