Certain rental activity may be business income and not rental income. If you are a sole member of an LLC, complete PA Schedule C.

For additional information regarding the definition of a busi- ness or profession, and for Pennsylvania’s requirements for reporting income and expenses, go to the Department's Web site at www.revenue.state.pa.us and link to the PA PIT Guide.

If your business had expenses of $5,000 or less, you may be able to use PA Schedule C-EZ instead of PA Schedule C.

Note: Pennsylvania determines income and (loss) under accountingprinciples,systemsorpracticesthatareacceptable by standards of the accountingprofessionand consistent with regulations of the Department.

Pennsylvania allows a taxpayer to usefederal tax accounting rules to determine income or (loss) to the extent consistent with department regulations and to the extent federal tax accounting rules clearly reflect income.

You may use any accounting method for PA purposes, as long as you apply your accounting methods consistently.

PA law does not contain provisions for statutory employees. Federal statutory employees may be required to report PA taxableincomeonLine1a,PA-40,andusePAScheduleUE to deduct expenses. See Chapter 7 of the PA PIT Guide for more information.
