Regulatory Roundup June 2020July 01, 2020 Blog Post
Legislative updates from June include new tax filing deadline, minimum wage increases, and other statewide initiatives.
While much of the compliance legislation over the last few months has been in response to the coronavirus pandemic, June has brought a few mid-year announcements of note that can impact your business.
In addition to the release of new Form 941 and Form 7200, the IRS has also postponed Federal Tax Filing and paying until July 15, 2020, without penalty and interest, regardless of the amount owed. This applies to all taxpayers, including individuals, corporations, and other non-corporate tax filers as well as those who pay self-employment tax.
Minimum wage increases for numerous states and local jurisdictions go into effect on July 1, 2020 – some of which include mandatory health benefits for qualifying employees. Several other statewide acts also have effective dates between June and the end of the year that you should be aware of, including paid family and medical leave, overtime reporting, check stub requirements, and more.
Here is a full list of this month’s compliance and tax alerts:
