Extending the deadline for paying income tax for small business owners and self-employed persons… Deferring up to 3 months in consideration of the damage caused by COVID-19

Lee Seung-woo, the 2nd general coordinator of the Central Disaster and Safety Countermeasures Headquarters (Director of the Disaster and Safety Management Headquarters of the Ministry of Public Administration and Security) speaks at a major headquarters meeting held at the Government Complex Sejong on April 27.

The government is extending the deadline for paying income tax by up to three months for small business owners and self-employed people who have been affected by the prolonged COVID-19.

On April 27, Lee Seung-woo, the 2nd general coordinator of the Central Disaster and Safety Countermeasures Headquarters (Director of the Disaster Safety Management Headquarters of the Ministry of Public Administration and Security) held a major headquarters meeting held at the government complex in Sejong, saying, “The government is committed to overcoming disasters for small businesses and self-employed people who have had difficulties in making a living due to COVID-19. In order to provide support, the payment deadlines for the 2022 global income tax and personal local income tax will be extended by up to three months.” Accordingly, the deadline for payment of global income tax and personal local income tax for small business owners and self-employed persons who are eligible for loss compensation in the third quarter of last year will be extended from the end of May to the end of August.

In addition, additional measures to reduce the burden on them, such as exempting tax payment collateral, will be implemented together. Lee said, “We will also exempt tax payment collateral for those subject to the payment deadline and pay tax refunds early,” and announced various policy efforts to support small business owners and the self-employed.

This measure appears to be a part of a comprehensive system reform in line with the recovery of daily life while helping small business owners and self-employed people who have suffered damage in the aftermath of COVID-19. “Starting this week, we have downgraded Corona 19 from the existing first-class infectious disease to the second-class infectious disease,” Lee said. We plan to prepare so that they can be incorporated.”

He then gave a diagnosis that “the quarantine situation is stable and there is enough room to respond to medical care, and we are one step closer to recovering from daily life,” he said. According to the main script, the number of severe cases of Corona 19 on that day stood at 546, which fell to the 500 level for the first time in 62 days since February 24 (581). The infection reproduction index also recorded 0.7 as of the third week of April, showing a steady decline, and the utilization rate of intensive care beds remains at 30%. During this period, the risk of COVID-19 across the country and the metropolitan area was evaluated as ‘medium’ for the first time in 14 weeks.

The government’s policy on the daily restoration of the medical system has also emerged. Coordinator Lee said, “We will reorganize the treatment system with a focus on severe beds, but we will make it easy to check the location of the outpatient treatment center on the Internet portal for convenient face-to-face treatment and prescription for home healers.”
