State Department of Revenue (DOR) – COVID-19 resource list for impacted Washington businesses and workers

Agency / Department: State Department of Revenue (DOR)

Resource: COVID-19 resource list for impacted Washington businesses and workers

Details: The Washington State Department of Revenue (DOR) can work with impacted companies that request an extension on tax filing. The law grants the Department authority to extend the due date for excise tax returns. DOR may also waive penalties under limited circumstances if a business is late in paying its tax obligation. The law also grants the Department authority to provide a one-time, 24 month, late payment penalty waiver if the business has not owed a late payment penalty during the previous 24 months. DOR may also work with businesses that cannot file or pay their taxes on time if they are impacted by a declared state of emergency. When a state of emergency or disaster has been officially declared, affected businesses that owe Washington taxes may qualify for:

– A filing extension for excise tax returns (without the limitations described above); and/or
– A late payment penalty waiver request (without the limitations described above)
