The FAQs reveal that certain tax deadlines during the “movement control order” period have been extended—in many instances to 31 May 2020—including:

  • The submission of documents as part of tax audits
  • Payments by companies and others of estimated tax
  • Submissions of estimated tax by certain taxpayers

There is also relief provided in the form of deferment regarding estimated taxes reported on form CP204, due now in June 2020 or September 2020.

The deadline for submitting a country-by-country report has been extended (the new due date depends on the date when the report was originally due).
