HAWAII:  RELIEF FOR TAXPAYERS as of 3/23/2020

Department of Taxation Announcement No. 2020-01

Update 2 as of 3/19/2020 3:00 p.m. Hawaii time: Good news to report – language from S. 3535 that gives a 3-month delay for the filing deadline, and postponing estimated tax payments due until October 15th , was included in the bigger bill introduced in the Senate late today. Great outcome - we'll watch for Senate action next!

Update as of 3/19/2020 (the HSCPA also urged Senators Hirono and Schatz to support S.3535 Tax Filing Relief measure)

The HSCPA sent a similar request with recommendations to the Hawaii Department of Taxation.  View letter here.

We are aware that Treasury Secretary Mnuchin announced today (3/17) a series of tax relief measures designed to assist taxpayers and tax preparers during the coronavirus pandemic. The AICPA is confirming the specifics of these actions with the Dept. of Treasury and IRS and will update us as soon as possible.  Please continue to monitor our website for updates.
