California announces assistance for businesses impacted by COVID-19

Posted on December 3, 2020

The Governor’s office announced this week that ​California will provide temporary tax relief for eligible businesses impacted by COVID-19 restrictions​. The temporary tax relief offers:

  • An automatic three-month income tax extension for taxpayers filing less than $1 million in sales tax.
  • An extension of the availability of existing interest and penalty-free payment agreements to companies with up to $5 million in taxable sales.
  • Expanded interest-free payment options for larger businesses particularly affected by significant restrictions on operations based on COVID-19 transmissions.

In addition to this tax relief, the state announced a ​$500 million COVID Relief Grant program​. You can receive updates about this and other business developments and resources by signing up for​ ​Get Digital California​. The Sonoma County​ ​Economic Development Board will also disseminate information about these resources to local businesses as soon as it is available.
