The fee is usually due by July 31st every year. For 2024, it is July 31st, Wednesday.


Penalties and Consequences for Failure to File the PCORI Tax


As the PCORI charge is considered an excise tax, any associated penalties for failing to file a return or pay a tax would seem to apply even if the PCORI regulations do not specifically mention penalties for failing to report or pay the fee. The penalties for failing to file a return or pay taxes are outlined in Code ยง6651.


  1. For every month or part of a month that the return is late, there is a penalty of 5% of the excise tax owed, up to a maximum of 25% of the unpaid tax. The minimum penalty for not filing within 60 days of the deadline, including extensions is $100, whichever is less, or the whole amount of tax that has to be paid with the return.

  2. In addition, there's a fine for not paying the excise tax on time. Up to 25% of the unpaid tax, is equivalent to 0.5% of any tax that is not paid by the deadline for every month or part of a month that the tax is not paid.

  3. Interest on overdue excise taxes may be assessed in addition to penalties.
