State & Local Tax Impacts of COVID-19 for Florida – 2021

Thoughtware Alert Published: May 03, 2021 | Updated: Jun 08, 2021

Information current as of April 30, 2021.

COVID-19 has changed life across the globe. Many taxing jurisdictions are taking mitigating actions to create social distance and aid taxpayers. The following is a running list of actions by jurisdiction, which generally result in additional time to file and/or pay. Further, many jurisdictions have closed their offices to in-person use by taxpayers and suspended their audit and administrative functions. This alert doesn’t cover similar waivers from local-level taxing authorities. These developments continue to quickly evolve; check with your BKD Trusted Advisor or visit our COVID-19 Resource Center for current information as needed.

Information Specific to Florida

Florida announced that due to Gov. Ron DeSantis’ Executive Order 21-80, the deadline for paying first-quarter 2021 state unemployment insurance taxes is extended to June 1, 2021. Note, however, that the first-quarter 2021 contribution and wage report (Form RT-6, Florida Department of Revenue Employer’s Quarterly Report) is still due by April 30, 2021.
