Florida Department of Revenue extends filing due dates for Florida businesses

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Florida Department of Revenue Executive Director Jim Zingale issued Emergency Order #22-003, extending certain filing due dates for Florida businesses located in counties impacted by Hurricane Ian.  The order extends September 2022 and October 2022 reporting periods for sales and use tax, reemployment tax and several other tax types to November 23, 2022 for the six counties in southwest Florida where Hurricane Ian made landfall: Charlotte, Collier, DeSoto, Hardee, Lee, and Sarasota. This extension is intended to ensure fairness and consistency in tax administration for those impacted by the storm. 

This means taxpayers in these counties with returns, reports, and payments due on or after September 23, 2022, and on or before November 23, 2022 are now due on November 23, 2022.  Electronic returns and payments must be initiated on or before November 22, 2022, 5:00 p.m. EST.  Taxpayers in these counties will not receive notices for late filing or failure to file if they file by the extended due date, but may receive correspondence related to any filing made during the extension period.

The Department realizes that certain businesses outside these six counties also suffered severe losses that directly affected and continue to affect their ability to file tax returns and pay their taxes.  The Department will work with all affected taxpayers on a case-by-case basis.

Those businesses affected by this order or impacted by the storm who have questions regarding the order may contact Taxpayer Services at (850) 488-6800 or by email at GTAHurricaneHelp@Floridarevenue.com
