Additionally, Governor Northam announced that all of Virginia has been designated a part of the disaster relief area by the U.S. Small Business Administration. This designation allows small businesses and non-profits throughout the commonwealth to apply for low-interest federal disaster loans up to $2million from the SBA to pay fixed debts, payroll, accounts payable, and other expenses. You can apply at the link below.
Furthermore, Businesses impacted by COVID-19 can also request to defer the payment of state sales tax due tomorrow, March 20, 2020, for 30 days. When granted, businesses will be able to file no later than April 20, 2020 with a waiver of any penalties.
The Governor has requested that the Department of Taxation extend the due date of payment of Virginia individuals and corporate income taxes. While filing deadlines remain the same, the due date for individual and corporate income tax will now be June 1, 2020. Please note that interest will still accrue, so taxpayers who are able to pay by the original deadlines should do so.
