HARRISBURG, Pa., Oct. 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Department of Revenue will consolidate its Williamsport and Sunbury district offices in Sunbury, a move that will save taxpayers an estimated $45,000 annually in reduced operating costs.

The Williamsport district office, located at 44 Little League Blvd., will close permanently at the close of business Friday, Oct. 22.  Five Williamsport district office employees will be placed into the same positions in Sunbury.

Area residents seeking help filing state taxes or completing Property Tax/Rent Rebate program applications may call or visit one of the following district offices:

  • Sunbury – 535 Chestnut St.; 570-988-5520
  • Scranton – Samters Building, 101 Penn Ave., Room 200; 570-963-4585
  • Harrisburg – Strawberry Square, Lobby, 4th & Walnut Streets; 717-783-1405

Taxpayers are also encouraged to visit the Department of Revenue's website for information and tax filing resources.  At www.revenue.state.pa.us, taxpayers can file returns, make payments (including estimated payments), check the status of returns and refunds, update information, pay taxes by credit/debit card, access online customer service, review answers to commonly asked questions and download tax forms.

After the Williamsport and Sunbury district offices are consolidated, the department will have 15 district offices.  Two similar consolidations occurred earlier this year with the closing of offices in Pottsville and York; combined, the three office consolidations result in $107,000 in annual savings.
