OLYMPIA – June 30, 2015 – The Washington State Department of Revenue (Revenue) wants businesses impacted by the Sleepy Hollow wildfire to know tax relief is available. Revenue will work with businesses that cannot file or pay their taxes on time due to the wildfire.
Businesses in a disaster area can ask for:
- More time to file and pay their taxes
- A waiver of a late payment penalty
- An extension on expiring reseller permits and business licenses and registrations
- An audit to be rescheduled
Taxes are due on July 25 for monthly-reporting businesses, and quarterly filers must file and pay by July 31.
Any individual or business that owns property in the declared disaster area may be eligible for property tax relief. Property owners can visit Revenue’s disaster relief page for links to the forms that should be filed with the local county assessor’s office.
Businesses can request an extension or penalty waiver by sending a secure email in their My Account or by calling Revenue’s customer service staff at 360-705-6705 during regular work week hours. Customer service by phone is offered in Spanish as well.
