Form 471 Deadline is This Thursday!

March 20, 2018

~ Contact me ASAP if you can’t meet the March 22 deadline ~

So far, 649 PA schools and libraries have submitted their FY 2018 Form 471s – almost exactly the same number at this same point last year.  This also means that 300+ PA entities still have to file before this Thursday.  If you haven’t yet started the 471, please do so today!  The forms, particularly Category 2 applications, can take several hours to complete.  We are also seeing the EPC system beginning to really slow down from noon – 5, so you may want to consider filing earlier or later in the day.  Also, much of Pennsylvania is slated to get a snow storm tonight and tomorrow.  If you cannot make the March 22 deadline, please contact me as soon as possible so we can discuss your options.

Below are guides that can help you navigate through almost every step of the application.  If you have questions, please e-mail me!  I’m available during the evenings, too, if you need me.
