Relief for businesses in counties affected by wildfires


CDTFA

As a result of an emergency proclamation issued by Governor Gavin Newsom for Mariposa County, taxpayers affected by the wildfire may request:

  • Extensions to file returns: An extension of up to three months to file and pay taxes or fees is available for most CDTFA-administered programs;
  • Relief from interest and penalties: Relief from interest and penalties may be provided to people unable to file their returns and pay taxes and fees when they are due;
  • Copies of CDTFA records: Taxpayers who need to obtain copies of CDTFA tax records can receive replacements free of charge; and
  • Updated account information: This may include changing an address, opening or closing a business location, or obtaining a copy of a seller’s permit or license.
