States are working fast and furious to get out their response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Since my last update blog, Connecticut, Hawaii and Indiana are among the states that have either released or updated the FAQs on their websites with new information on the latest COVID-19 measures.
Some states are offering tax relief in terms of delaying either unemployment insurance payments or withholding tax deposits. These include: Iowa, Missouri, North Carolina, North Dakota and Texas. However, Arkansas and Colorado, at this time, are not offering extensions for payments or deposits of withholding taxes.
When it comes to unemployment claims, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Vermont are not charging an employer’s account for SUI benefits claims related to the COVID-19 emergency.
