Update: State and local tax agency responses to the COVID-19 pandemic continue
The COVID-19 pandemic has created significant uncertainty across all lines of business and government. State and local tax authorities (hereafter "state agencies," unless specifically indicated) are working to respond to the impact this public health emergency is having on their employees and taxpayers. They are also working on how to address the possible inability of taxpayers to file or pay, and administrators to process, tax returns — especially when filing and payment deadlines are imminent. State agencies, governors, and legislatures are grappling with these issues daily and are rapidly releasing new guidance.
The attached is an updated summary of recent state agency responses. New and amended information from our last Alert is highlighted in yellow.
For a discussion of state tax policy issues for consideration, see Tax Alert 2020-0610.
