The Internal Revenue Service pushed back the federal filing deadline. Now, California has followed suit for small business filing state taxes.
Gov. Gavin Newsom signed an executive order Monday night delaying by 90 days the deadline for businesses filing tax returns of less than $1 million.
Small business won’t have to file their first-quarter returns until July 1. The order also extends the statute of limitations to file a claim for refund by 60 days for business impacted by the coronavirus.
The California Department of Motor Vehicles also will begin accepting license renewals through the mail under the order. The DMV has already shuttered field offices across the state and launched more services online.
Newsom’s order is six pages long and wide-ranging. One declaration makes it easier for companies to hold remote shareholder meetings. Another freezes for 60 days the state’s continuing education requirements for healthcare workers to retain their licenses.
