In an April 2020 release, officials announced that Newfoundland and Labrador will extend tax return filing deadlines until 23 June 2020 (for returns originally due on or between 20 March 2020 and 31 May 2020). As a result, monthly filers may delay their filing and remittance of such taxes owed for the February, March, and April 2020 reporting periods to 23 June 2020.

The extended deadline applies for several provincial taxes, including:

  • Gasoline tax
  • Carbon tax
  • Health and post-secondary education tax
  • Insurance companies tax
  • Mining and mineral rights tax
  • Tax on insurance premiums
  • Tobacco tax

Newfoundland and Labrador is extending the tax filing and payment deadline for international fuel tax agreement returns from interjurisdictional carriers regarding their first quarter of 2020, to 1 June 2020 (from 30 April 2020).

Taxpayers may submit a written request for abatement of interest and penalties if they are prevented from making a payment when due, filing a return on time, or otherwise complying with a tax obligation, as a result of COVID-19. All requests will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
