New York State will extend sales tax interest and penalty relief through June 22, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said Thursday.
The state had previously provided relief through May 19 for returns due March 20. This extension could provide interest and penalty relief for up to 89,000 vendors who had returns due in March. Small businesses file their taxes quarterly and annually, and have taxable receipts of less than $300,000 in the previous quarter.
The governor also said employees are encouraged to call the Coronavirus Hotline at 1-888-364-3065 if they believe their employer is not following PPE, hygiene or social distancing guidelines as more businesses begin to reopen.
