Coronavirus Announcement: Business Property Statements

Filing Deadline Extended: The deadline to file a business property statement without penalty has been extended to June 1, 2020.

Per California State Executive Order N-61-20 Revenue and Taxation Code section 441(b) and 463(a) are suspended to May 31, 2020 to the extent that either imposes a penalty for failing to file a property statement on or before May 7, 2020, such that no penalty shall be imposed upon a taxpayer if the taxpayer files a personal property tax statement as required by Revenue and Taxation Code 441(a) on or before May 31, 2020.

Because May 31, 2020 falls on a Sunday, the deadline advances to the first following business day: Monday, June 1, 2020.
