On Monday, Greenville City Council passed an ordinance extending the deferral of late payment penalties for Local Accommodations Fees and Local Hospitality Taxes until June 22nd for businesses that file their required monthly reports by the normal deadlines. This covers sales that occurred in February, March, April and May 2020 (reports filed March, April, May, June). Please remember to file even if your sales for the reporting month was $0. Payments not made by June 22nd will begin to accrue penalties on June 23rd. Businesses that have not filed regular Accommodations or Hospitality Tax reports are still subject to penalties.
The City Council also extended the deadline for payment of new business license fees and business license renewal fees without penalty until June 22. Businesses are still required to file their renewal applications and new businesses must still file for a business license before opening. Renewal fees and new business license fees not paid on June 22nd will begin to accrue penalties on June 23rd.
The Chamber thanks the City for its flexibility during the COVID outbreak even through it is impacting municipal revenue. We appreciate the City Council’s work to be a partner with city businesses in their attempts to reopen.
