If you are a resident of Pennsylvania, you have a number of options when it comes time to file your income taxes with the Commonwealth. Taxpayers can file their simple returns over the phone simply by calling 888-4-PA-FILE. Residents also have the option of mailing in a paper return, but many prefer the convenience of filing their taxes electronically.

Things You'll Need

  • W2 form
  • Previous year's tax return
  • Income information
  • Gather all of your income information before you begin. It is important to have all your documentation ready before signing onto the Pennsylvania e-file system.

  • Open your Internet browser and go to Pa.direct.file.state.pa.us/authentication.asp. Click on the "who can file" link to make sure you meet the eligibility requirements.

  • Choose your authentication method and click "Continue." Pennsylvania provides a number of ways for users to verify their identities, including driver's license information and the amount of last year's tax return.

  • Enter your income and withholding information as requested and click "File" to file your return electronically. Wait until you receive confirmation that your return has been filed.
