27 May Extension for the Abatement of Penalties and Interest for Sales and Use Tax due to the Novel Coronavirus, COVID-19
The Tax Commissioner’s authority to abate interest, in addition to late filing and payment
penalties, for taxpayers who were required to file returns and remit sales and use taxes by
March 20, 2020, for the sales tax quarterly period that ended February 29, 2020, was scheduled
to expire on May 19, 2020. Governor Cuomo’s Executive Order 202.32 has temporarily
extended this authority.
As a result, those who were unable to timely file and pay quarterly and annual sales tax
returns that were due on March 20, 2020, as a result of COVID-19, must now file and pay any
amount due by June 22, 2020, in order for the relief outlined in N-20-1, Announcement
Regarding the Abatement of Penalties and Interest for Sales and Use Tax due to the Novel
Coronavirus, COVID-19, to apply.
