Jonathan Williams and Skip Estes on Extending Virginia Tax Deadlines
In their latest op-ed, ALEC Executive Vice President of Policy and Chief Economist Jonathan Williams and Legislative Manager Skip Estes explain why Virginia Governor Ralph Northam’s decision not to extend income tax filing and payment deadlines in Virginia is a big mistake.
Virginians will need ample time in the coming weeks to take care of their families. They shouldn’t have to deal with tax payments or filings right now. Businesses will need time to figure out how to reopen their doors successfully after we emerge from this crisis. They also shouldn’t have to deal with taxes right now. If we make them divert their precious time away from their families and away from their livelihoods, the costs will be enormous.
