March 19, 2020
The City Manager has declared a local emergency during the current COVID-19 Pandemic.  The widespread closures, social distancing, and recommendations to avoid public gatherings have created excess burdens upon the restaurant, lodging, and entertainment businesses of the City.  The City Manager has authorized businesses to defer payment of certain taxes without penalty, interest, and collection activities.

The City Manager hereby directs the Commissioner of the Revenue and the Billings and Collections Division to not impose penalties and interest upon the late filing or late remittance of Meals, Lodging & Amusement taxes during the pendency of the Emergency.

Furthermore, the February filings are due tomorrow with 50% of the tax remittance.  The remaining 50% of the tax remittance will be deferred until April 20, 2019.  The March filing will be deferred until May 20, 2020.

If you have any questions, please contact the Commissioner of the Revenue office at 434-455-3880.
