October 18, 2005
The DOR is clarifying our earlier guidance regarding extensions for filing of tax returns and payment of tax.
Withholding tax returns and payment of the tax for the months of August and September should be remitted before October 25, 2005. Monthly returns due after this date will be due on their regularly scheduled due dates.
We will review any extension request on a case by case basis and will grant them with reasonable circumstances. Those located in Hancock, Harrison, and Jackson counties may receive an additional extension based on extenuating circumstances. For additional information, please contact our Withholding Tax Division at 601-923-7088.
