With the federal government extending the deadline for Americans to file their taxes, U.S. Rep. Ross Spano, R-Fla., is urging Gov. Ron DeSantis to do the same for businesses in the Sunshine State.

At the end of last week, Spano called on DeSantis to move the deadline for Florida businesses to file their taxes from May 1 to August 3 thanks to the impact of coronavirus.

Spano weighed in on why he thought DeSantis should move the deadline.

“Today, President Trump directed the IRS to delay the deadline to file federal taxes by 90 days, and I believe we should provide the same relief to Florida taxpayers,” Spano said on Friday. “I urge Governor DeSantis to follow President Trump’s example and give Floridians the immediate financial assistance they need to respond to the coronavirus.”

“Currently, this year’s Florida corporate income tax filing deadline is set for May 1, 2020,” Spano’s office noted. “If taxes are not filed by this time, businesses may face penalties of up to 50 percent of the amount of taxes unpaid, or up to $300 even if no taxes are actually owed.”

Also last week, Spano urged the White House move the deadline for Americans to file their taxes from April 15. The Trump administration has moved that deadline back to July 15.
