Business tax relief in response to new coronavirus guidance

< All Topics

In response to the Governor’s new COVID-19 guidance, the Department of Revenue plans to offer the following relief to impacted businesses. Visit the DOR’s site here.

Payment Extensions Revenue will provide payment extensions, upon request, to businesses in the industries directly impacted by these new restrictions. Affected businesses should reach out to the Department to request an extension before the due date.

Businesses granted payment extensions are still being asked to file their returns by their original due dates even if the business is unable to pay. Businesses may request a payment extension using one of the following methods:

  • Self-Initiated Extensions – Qualifying businesses have the option of self-initiating a 30-day extension by applying in My DOR.
  • Secure Message – Send a secure email using My DOR to request an extension.
  • Call – Revenue’s customer service team is available to help at 360-705-6705, Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Payment Plans

If a business is still unable to pay their tax return by the extended payment due date, they should contact their local field office to discuss payment options, take advantage of our new Self-Service Payment Plan tool, or call DOR’s Initial Contact Team at 1-800-631-4028 for assistance.

If an impacted business already has an existing payment plan and needs to delay a payment or make an adjustment, they should contact their Revenue Agent directly to discuss options that may be available.

Interest Waiver

In accordance with the Governor’s Proclamation 20-20, the Department will waive interest from February 29, 2020 until the termination of the COVID-19 State of Emergency or 11:59 p.m. on December 7, 2020, whichever occurs first.

After this date, interest will begin accruing on outstanding balances unless the proclamation is extended further.
