On March 31, U.S. Representatives Steve Chabot, Anthony Gonzales and Steve Stivers were among the 60 Congressional members who signed on to a letter, led by Representative Lloyd Smucker, requesting IRS Commissioner Rettig extend the federal tax filing deadline for first quarter estimated tax payments to May 17, 2021. Such a change would streamline tax filings, help ensure tax compliance and help ease the burden of millions of small businesses and other taxpayers.
Since thanks to these three leaders for signing the letter and supporting Ohio’s small business community, individual tax payers and the CPA profession.
There is a growing list of people and organizations asking for an extension for all filers and we hope Commissioner Rettig heeds the call to make this common-sense alignment.
Small businesses and the CPAs who advise them recently had a huge success when Congress decided to extend the PPP application deadline. OSCPA and AICPA will continue to advocate on issues to support economic recovery. We are making strides towards a bright economic future for all citizens.
