Due to the impact of the COVID-19 virus and the measures taken to help limit its spread throughout the state, Governor Ricketts issued Executive Order No. 20-17.
This Executive Order waives both the 10% penalty on the tax due for personal property returns that are filed or amended after May 1, 2020, but on or before June 30, 2020, and the 25% penalty on the tax due for returns that are filed or amended after July 1, 2020.
The Executive Order also provides for the exemption for personal property for returns filed or amended after May 1, 2020 and on or before July 15, 2020. Returns or value added to a return after July 15, 2020, are not eligible for the $10,000 personal property exemption.
