2020-02: Governor provides 60-day filing extension to coronavirus victims


In his March 12, 2020, executive order, the Governor extended the deadline for state tax filing by 60 days for individuals and businesses unable to file on time based on compliance with public health requirements related to COVID-19. It appears the Governor’s order may be much broader and may provide relief for payments as well as other deadlines (e.g. refund and protest claims). We are following up with the FTB and the CDTFA regarding the scope of the order. We are also anticipating that the IRS will be providing similar relief shortly.

We will keep you updated as more information becomes available.
