The legislation makes three important changes: 1). Changes the corporate tax due date to the 15th day of the month following the federal tax due date. 2). Addresses the inconsistency with this year’s local tax filing due date. 3). Makes a permanent change so that the local tax due date moves automatically when the feds and state move their due dates.
