Is this an issue of taxpayers being slow or Keystone? I sent my tax payment in several weeks ago and my check has still not been cashed.

The schools tax money is probably located in the same place the tax payer's county tax refunds are located. The company is named correctly...Keystone COLLECTIONS...nothing in the name says payments or refunds. Maybe Mr. Phillips should contact Keystone. Oh, good luck talking to someone that gives you any sense that they know what they are doing.

Yep - know the feeling. Paid mine to and my check hasn't been cashed for weeks. Also inquired about my refund that is now over 4 months old. First they say (which was my fault to a degree) that they need the PA40 included with return. Nice that they could send me a letter to let me know that my return wasn't complete (because of their way of doing things) They told me that like 3 -4 weeks ago in which I faxed it to them and I just called them yesterday (AGAIN) wondering when they were going to cash my check for the taxes and when my husband and I would be receiving our return. Answer - end of August early September. Then I asked if I was receiving any interest collected on our refunds because god knows if we didn't pay we would have penalties to pay. I asked if they could call me back with an answer to that because the lady that I spoke to didn't know and guess what - never got a call back - maybe they mixed me up with someone else in returning a call because July 30th they called my number for someone else. Nice to see that we have such a dependable and efficient department collecting funds (NOT). My opinion - I think it is to much for them to handle and we need a firm that can be speedy and accurate. These people (Keystone Collections) are a JOKE. Definately not running any better or faster than the crook we were dealing with. Should be NO reason I have to wait almost a half a year to get my refund and weeks on end for my school tax check to be cashed.

Why does Keystone need copies of state tax returns to process county EIT ? What business is it of theirs, and are they violating any right to know laws by demanding them ? I too am waiting since march for a refund check and got the same missing PA40 excuse as the reason for the delay. I faxed it to them 8 weeks ago and still nothing. The mixed up files excuse is wearing a little thin. Seems like Keystone promised way more than they could deliver.

"Definately not running any better or faster than the crook we were dealing with."

So what is different from the lousy service we received at the hands of the other guys?
