Alaska DOR Announces Tax Filing, Payment Deadline Extension
SUMMARY BY TAX ANALYSTS
The Alaska Department of Revenue announced that following the passage of S.B. 241, due dates for filing and paying all tax types were extended to July 15, 2020, because of COVID-19, except for the oil and gas property and production taxes; the extension applies to returns, reports, and payments due between March 31, 2020, and July 14, 2020, without penalties or interest.
SOME DEPARTMENT OF REVENUE TAX DEADLINES EXTENDED TO JULY 15, 2020
The Governor has signed SB 241 — which extends filing and payment due dates for all tax types except Oil and Gas Property and Production taxes until July 15, 2020. The temporary statute is effective as of April 10, 2020. Returns and payments that were due on March 31, 2020 — before SB 241 was signed and effective — were extended through the Governor's COVID‐19 Disaster Order of Suspension No. 2. The above bill and Administrative Order extend the deadline to file tax returns, file reports, and make payments for all taxes under Alaska Statutes Title 43 — except for the Oil and Gas Property Tax and Oil and Gas Production Tax types — as well as all other tax types administered by the Tax Division and Charitable Gaming until July 15, 2020. This extension will apply to returns (includes amended and information returns), reports, and payments due between March 31, 2020 and July 14, 2020. Because the tax deadlines are extended, penalty or interest will be not be assessed if returns and payments are received for the affected periods on or before July 15, 2020.
Annual license renewal deadlines for Alcoholic Beverages, Fisheries, Mining, Motor Fuel, and Tobacco tax programs have not been extended, however any associated license fees can be paid on or before July 15, 2020 without penalty or interest.
