Sales Tax Payments
To assist businesses affected by the economic impact of COVID-19, qualified business taxpayers can defer tax payments for 60 days. Tax payments that are currently due on April 20th or May 20th will be extended to June 20th, interest and penalties will also be waived for approved businesses. The 60-day deferral applies only to sales tax payments associated with filing dates during the months of March and April. Please note that taxpayers that can pay, should pay, and that all taxpayers are still required to file on-time monthly returns even if their payments are deferred.Businesses must apply to the Sales Tax Department and receive a positive confirmation to be approved for deferred payments.
For those businesses that do not apply, the Sales Tax Department will include information about the tax relief program in those notices. Read more here
.Telephone Town Halls
Mayor Wade Troxell and City Manager Darin Atteberry will host two more telephone town hall meetings geared toward local businesses and non-profits. This will be an opportunity to hear from community leaders about the City’s response to COVID-19, as well as to ask questions and provide feedback during the live sessions:
- Tonight, Monday, April 6, now at 5:15 p.m. (time moved to accommodate Governor's state address at 6:30 p.m.)
- Thursday, April 9 at 10 a.m.
The format will be similar to our recent community town hall, and translation services will be available. We highly encourage businesses to participate in one of these calls.
