CALIFORNIA – Governor Gavin Newsom Monday signed an executive order that will provide tax, regulatory and licensing extensions for businesses.

The executive order allows the California Department of Tax and Fee Administration (CDTFA) to offer a 90-day extension for tax returns and tax payments for all businesses filing a return for less than $1 million in taxes. This means small businesses will have until the end of July to file their first-quarter returns.

Additionally, this order extends the statute of limitations to file a claim for refund by 60 days to accommodate tax and fee payers, Gov. Newsom said.

To executive order also includes extensions that impact state government workers, as well as consumers.

For instance, the Department of Motor Vehicles will limit in-person transactions for the next 60 days, allowing instead for mail-in renewals. Additionally, the Department of Consumer Affairs will waive continuing education requirements for several professions, also for the next 60 days.

Also, the order will extend the Office of Administrative Law’s deadlines to review regular department proposed regulations.

“The order also extends by 60 days the time period to complete investigation of public safety officers based on allegations of misconduct. Finally, deadlines for trainings, investigations, and adverse actions for state workers will also be extended,” Newsom said.
