The Treasury Department of Puerto Rico issued Circular Letter 17-18 announcing another postponement of certain deadlines relating to the payment and filing of taxes – including sales tax. The postponements are intended to give businesses opportunity to recover from the possible effects of Hurricane Maria. By way of a quick summary:
- The deadline for the final return for August sales tax transactions (Form SC 2915) was moved from September 20 to September 27;
- The deadline for other returns and payments which had been postponed to September 22 as result of Circular letter 17-13 and Informative Bulletin 17-17 have been further postponed to September 27.
- Finally, the Treasury Department also informs that the other deadlines (those originally postponed to dates other than September 22) established other taxes and contributions as result of Circular letter 17-13 and Informative Bulletin 17-17, will remain unchanged.
