Sales Tax Due Dates

April Sales Tax Due Dates 2020

by Sarah Craig

Sales tax due dates affected by COVID-19

We are living in unusual times. Because of COVID-19, this blog post is going to be a little different than our normal “these are the sales tax filings due this month” post.

A number of states, upon realizing the economic hardship COVID-19 is putting on businesses, have offered business owners some sales tax relief. You can read our article about every state’s sales tax filing and payment relief here. We’ve also noted each state offering some sort of relief for taxes due during the month of April in the list of sales tax filing due dates below.

We understand that you may have questions or need assistance during this time. Please feel free to reach out to us at support@taxjar.com. We’re here to help.
