DOR Announces Changes to Motor Carrier Regulations

On June 3, Governor Eric Holcomb renewed his declaration of a state public health emergency. INDOT revised the oversize/overweight permit available for vehicles hauling goods and supplies intended for emergency response/relief from conditions caused by COVID-19. Permit letters expire Aug. 3, 2020.

These permits are intended for loads of materials and supplies that are being hauled for emergency response or relief due to conditions caused by COVID-19. Loads cannot travel over legal weight limits when the materials or supplies hauled can no longer reasonably be considered part of the emergency response or relief efforts, even if the emergency permit is still valid.

To learn more or receive a permit letter, contact DOR's Oversize/Overweight (OSW) team at (317) 615-7320 or email IndianaOSW@dor.in.gov.

COVID-19 FAQs

  • When are my business trust payments due? (RST, FAB, WH, CIT)

    Business trust filings and payments remain due on their current monthly cycle due dates.

  • My business is closed and I have no tax revenue to report, what do I need to do?

    A return must be filed even when no tax is due unless the Indiana tax account has been closed using Form BC-100.  If your business is closed temporarily and has no tax revenue for a filing period, you must file a return indicating $0 for that period ($0 return).  If a business is permanently closed, an Indiana tax account is no longer needed.  Please complete Form BC-100.

  • Will I still get my tax refund/ Is DOR still processing returns?

    Yes. All systems and operations are currently operating. DOR is currently processing individual tax returns resulting in refunds at normal speed (10 days electronically filed, 18 days paper-filed). You can check the status of your refund online or by calling 317-233-4018. DOR continues to maintain all operations at this time except for walk-in areas. Customers may still contact DOR via phone or email.

  • When are estimated payments due for filers who file on a calendar year basis?

    As a result of the extensions for estimated payments, for Individual and Corporate filers who file on a calendar year basis this means that the 1st estimated payment, normally due in April, will now be due after the 2nd estimated payment which remains due in June.

  • Will filing and payment deadlines for merchant collected taxes be extended (e.g. sales, FAB, CIT, withholding taxes)?

    Due dates for sales tax, withholding and all other taxes collected by merchants have not been extended. All filing and payment deadlines and rules remain in effect.

  • What do I do if I don’t have a power of attorney on file with my client in the state of Indiana, but do have a Federal power of attorney?

    Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, Indiana DOR will accept a Federal power of attorney (POA) to serve temporarily as the Indiana POA until further notice in certain circumstances:

    • The tax/form type on the Federal POA matches or is similar to the Indiana tax/form for which the person seeks to represent the client;
    • The requested representation is only for non-legal matters. (Any temporary acceptance of the Federal POA would not extend to protests of assessments or refund denial matters.); and
    • The Federal POA was executed on or before March 6, 2020. [the date Governor Holcomb issued Executive Order 20-02, decreeing a public health emergency]
  • If my employees are working from home during the COVID-19 crisis, does that modify my company's nexus determination?

    In response to the new remote work requirements associated  with the COVID-19 pandemic, the Indiana Department of Revenue will not use someone's relocation, that is the direct result of temporary remote work requirements arising from and during the COVID-19 pandemic health crisis, as the basis for establishing Indiana nexus or for exceeding the protections provided by P.L. 86-272 for the employer of the temporary relocated employee.

    The temporary protections provided under this guidance will extend for periods of time where:

    1. there is an official work from home order issued by an applicable federal, state or local government unit, or
    2. pursuant to the order of a physician in relation to the COVID-19 outbreak or due to an actual diagnosis of COVID-19, plus 14 days to allow for return to normal work locations.

    If the person remains in Indiana after the temporary remote work requirement has ended, nexus may be established for that employer. Likewise, an employer may not assert that solely having a temporarily relocated employee in Indiana under the circumstances described above creates nexus for the business or exceeds the protections of P.L. 86-272 for the employer.
