Check closely, and often, when state returns are due. It’s a moving target.
Individual state responses vary. California pushed out its date for filing and payment of state taxes to June 15. Minnesota granted a 30-day sales and use tax grace period for businesses that had a monthly sales and use tax payment due March 20, 2020. Colorado, New York, Connecticut, and Massachusetts have said at the time of this writing that they will adopt the federal relief rules and not require filing or payment until July 15.
State and community filing deadlines are changing quickly, and are not taking the same approach. So, check closely, and often, as dates, penalties and interest parameters are in motion.
