NYS Sales Tax Filing and Payment Extension Deadline Approaches

May 8, 2020

Quarterly and annual New York State sales tax vendors who were unable to file or pay March 20, 2020 sales tax returns due to the COVID-19 outbreak must file these returns and make payments by May 19, 2020. Some may be eligible to have penalties and interest waived, but penalty abatements must be submitted for approval and are not automatic.

Please note that New York sales tax vendors who are required to file returns on a monthly basis, and participants in the Promptax program for sales and use tax or prepaid sales tax on fuel are not eligible for this relief.
