California Delays Tax Deadlines, May Offer Additional Extensions

March 14, 2020, 8:37 PM

California announced it is giving individuals and companies affected by the coronavirus more time to file tax returns and payments. The Franchise Tax Board’s announcement, dated March 13, said the board may consider pushing back deadlines again if the Internal Revenue Service grants a longer relief period for taxpayers.

  • Individual filers, whose returns were due on April 15, can now have until June 15 to file their returns and pay.
  • Partnerships and LLCs that are taxed as partners were facing a March 15 deadline. The state has granted a 90-day extension, giving them until June 15 to file and pay.
  • And businesses that had quarterly estimated tax payments due on April 15 will now also be given until June 15, which is a 60-day extension.
  • Gov. Gavin Newsom issued an executive order on March 12 granting a 60-day extension that applied largely to sales tax filers, but not personal or corporate filers.
