Iowa Director of Revenue Kraig Paulsen has announced businesses in Iowa can continue to apply for a deferral of state sales and/or withholding tax. Gov. Kim Reynolds announced the Iowa Small Business Relief Program, which included grants and tax deferrals, on March 23. The Department of Revenue administers the tax deferral part of the program. The first round stopped accepting applications on April 30. Paulsen said the program is continuing with a second round of deferrals to provide ongoing flexibility for small businesses that have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The second round, which has different terms than the first round, will continue through June 30. Businesses that have already submitted an application and been accepted for the program will not need to reapply. Information about the program can be found at
