State and local tax guidance, tax relief in response to coronavirus (COVID-19)

State and local tax guidance, coronavirus

U.S. state and local jurisdictions have issued guidance for taxpayers or have provided tax relief in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Certain states or local governments have offered tax relief on extensions of time to file and to pay upcoming state and local taxes, as well as additional information on matters such as agency shutdowns. 

KPMG’s State and Local Tax practice has prepared a report [PDF 124 KB] that, in table format, provides a summary of the jurisdictions that have issued guidance on extensions of time for filing and payment of income, sales and/or other state taxes, or penalty relief in light of COVID-19.

In this report, there are hyperlinks provided to the state website where the guidance can be found. 

This summary will be updated often, so please check back frequently. It is important to carefully read the guidance to determine the tax types affected and the type of relief (e.g., extension of time to file or pay). The situation is fluid, and initial guidance may be revised by the states or new guidance may be issued by state and local governments. 

KPMG observation

Tax professionals believe more states will respond to the COVID-19 situation now that the IRS has issued Notice 2020-17 on March 18, 2020, announcing that the due date to pay federal taxes is extended for certain individuals and corporations.
