Ardmore, PA asked in Estate Planning and Probate for Pennsylvania

Q: Have Covid restrictions extended filing deadlines i.e. estate probate filings, early tax payment discounts?

If the appointment of an estate administrator was 15 months after the death of the estate owner (date of death was Oct 2020, appointment of administrator was Jan 2022), what should be used as the the date Estate formed for generating the estate Tax ID date? Note, the original death certificate was issued incorrectly and and the corrected certificate was not issued until Jul 2021. Were tax payment periods (to obtain 5% discount) extended due to Covid shutdown of the State offices?
