Hawaii GET filing deadline now earlier
The state Department of Taxation is reminding taxpayers who make general excise tax payments that the deadline has changed to earlier in the month.
Under a law enacted last year, the deadline for monthly, quarterly and semiannual returns has changed to the 20th day of the month following the close of the tax period.
Previously taxpayers could wait until the end of the following month to get the payments in.
The Tax Department said it had postponed implementation of the new deadlines until 2010 to allow people more time to prepare for the transition.
