Federal, State/ Local and Industry Updates Related to COVID-19 : Stay Connected With Berntson Porter

|

Federal and state responses to the COVID-19 pandemic are being published daily. To help you keep track of these resources, Berntson Porter has developed a new online library of information related to COVID-19 legislative changes.

A few recent updates to highlight:

  • Property taxes – King, Snohomish, Pierce, and Whatcom Counties have extended the payment deadline for first half property taxes (individual and commercial) from April 30th to June 1, 2020, with Kitsap delaying until May 31, 2020. This does not apply to payments made through a mortgage lender or financial institution. Other counties may offer similar delays in the future, however the June 1st deadline is not expected to be further delayed as local districts rely on the payments for debt service requirements. Along with these counties, updates for both Thurston and Pacific counties are available here as part of our continuing COVID-19 coverage.
  • Many states have delayed their 2019 income tax filing and payment deadlines for individuals; check our state by state reference guide for the latest updates.
  • Different industries face unique challenges due to COVID-19. To learn more about how the Construction, Distribution and Manufacturing and other industries are being impacted, visit our Industry / Business Insights for COVID-19.
  • Federal legislative updates: President Trump has signed the CARES Act; the third phase of economic stimulus related to the coronavirus and intended to spur the economy with more than $2 trillion in relief. Understand the key loan provisions of the Act as well as tax implications.
