Small Business Relief Tax Deferral Application

To provide financial assistance to small businesses economically impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Iowa Department of Revenue is allowing for deferrals of sales tax and withholding tax in certain circumstances, including providing for a suspension of penalty and interest. Beginning May 1, 2020, the Department is now accepting applications for 30-day extensions for eligible businesses for sales tax and withholding tax payments for tax periods beginning April 1, 2020 through June 30, 2020. Each completed application received will be reviewed.

Only sales tax or withholding tax permits that are in good standing with the Iowa Department of Revenue regarding filing and payment will be considered for relief.
