With the federal government extending the deadline for Americans to file their taxes, US Representative Ross Spano, urged the Governor Ron DeSantis to do the same for businesses in Florida.

Late last week, Spano asked DeSantis that, due to the impact of the COVID-19 extend the deadline for Florida businesses file your taxes from May 1 to August 3review Florida Daily.
Spano explained why DeSantis should move the deadline. "Today the President Trump ordered the IRS that delays the deadline to file federal taxes by 90 days, and I think we should provide the same relief to Florida taxpayers," he says. I invite the governor DeSantis to follow the example of President Trump and give Floridians the financial assistance they need to respond to the coronavirus."
"Currently, the Florida corporate income tax filing deadline is set for May 1, 2020," Spano's office noted. “If the taxes are not filed by this time, the companies can face fines of up to 50 percent of the amount of unpaid taxes, or up to $300, even if no taxes are due.
Also last week, Spano urged the white house to change the deadline for Americans to file their taxes from April 15. The administration Trump has pushed that deadline back to July 15.
