Relief from penalties extended
The state Business Licensing Service (BLS) is still waiving late filing penalties under the extension of the governor's Proclamation 20-20 through December 7, 2020. The Department of Revenue maintains updated business relief information at dor.wa.gov/taxrelief.
Users can manage text or email notifications for Revenue news, reporting dates, rate changes, new laws, and much more. It's customizable for each user. Unsubscribing from texts and emails is easy, too.
