State Issues

On May 6, California issued an executive order suspending until May 6, 2021, certain provisions of the California Revenue and Taxation code that would impose penalties, costs, or interest for a failure to pay property taxes, provided that certain conditions are satisfied. For example, the property for which the taxes were not paid must either be residential real property occupied by the taxpayer or real property owned and operated by the taxpayer that qualifies as a small business under the Small Business Administration’s regulations. The taxpayer must also demonstrate that the taxpayer has suffered economic hardship, or was otherwise unable to pay in a timely fashion, due to Covid-19 or any local, state, or federal government response to Covid-19.
