If I opt-in for the state-administered municipal net profit tax, will I still be required to comply with requests for information and pay bills and assessments issued by municipal corporations or third-party administrators?

Taxpayers are required to comply with requests for information and respond to bills and assessments that are issued by municipal corporations and third-party administrators for any taxable year prior to 2018 and for any taxable year for which the taxpayer has not opted-in with the Department.  The Department cannot accept returns, payments, or appeals for any tax years for which the taxpayer has not opted-in with the Department. For any taxable year for which the taxpayer has opted-in with the Department, the Department will be the sole administrator of the municipal net profit tax and all requests for information, bills, assessments, and other correspondence for those years will come from the Department.
