New York Extends Sales Tax Relief
As discussed in our post on March 24, 2020, New York State had previously announced that certain businesses that missed the March 20, 2020 due date for filing sales tax returns covering the quarter (or year) ended on February 29, 2020 were eligible for relief from penalties and interest, if such businesses missed the due date due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
Under the original provisions of the relief, such businesses were required to file the related return and pay all sales taxes due within 60 days of the due date for the return, which was on or before May 19, 2020.
Notice N-20-6 extends eligibility for this relief until June 22, 2020 for businesses that file the related return and pay all sales taxes due by that date.
To request the relief, businesses must go to the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance website and click on: Tax Relief for quarterly and annual filers sales tax vendors affected by COVID-19.
The relief does not apply to monthly filers and participants in the PrompTax program.
