Tax resolution attorney John Willis, CEO and founder of IRSALLSTAR writes about possible penalty relief for missing corporate tax filing deadline as well as a possible new payroll tax credit to help protect employees from COVID-19 .

Fairhope, AL, September 30, 2020: Tax Attorney John Willis, CEO and founder of, recently published an article on his website entitled Possible Penalty Relief For Those Who Missed Sept. 15 Corporate Tax Deadline. Mr. Willis encourages business owners to take advantage of every possible opportunity that can help them survive the pandemic.

John P WillisWillis writes, “If your business’s fiscal year-end is June 30 and you missed the corporate tax filing deadline on September 15, you may be able to avoid paying penalties if you missed the deadline due to COVID-19 hardships.” He elaborates, “The IRS understands that people are impacted by coronavirus, and if you are really trying to be compliant, the IRS doesn’t want to penalize you. In other words, the IRS is flexible in granting penalty relief where taxpayers can demonstrate good-faith efforts in filing their returns”

“Apparently,” says Willis, “you simply have to write COVID-19 at the top of your tax return. According to an article, AICPA said that the IRS has said they would recognize that as an indication of needing penalty relief. Though it is not a blanket forgiveness. Good faith effort must be seen.”

According to Willis, “On another front, COVID-19 has politicians scrambling to create programs that will help fuel economic recovery. One republican Congressman from Texas, Pete Olson, has introduced The Businesses Preparing for a Better Tomorrow Act, which, if passed would provide a payroll tax credit to employers for expenses used for qualified workplace best practices training associated with protecting employees from COVID-19.” He goes on to add, “According to the new bill, qualified workplace training expenses would be defined as amounts paid or incurred by the employer for education and training with respect to industry best practices and recommendations made by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, with the primary purpose of preventing the spread of COVID-19.”
