"D. Notwithstanding the provisions of the 4th enactment of Chapters 17 and 18, 2019 Acts of Assembly, any taxpayer eligible for a refund out of the Taxpayer Relief Fund established  in the fifth enactment of Chapters 17 and 18, 2019 Acts of Assembly, in an amount up to $110 for an individual, or $220 for married persons filing a joint return, shall be eligible for such refund regardless of whether they filed their taxes prior to September 1, 2019."


(This amendment eliminates the deadline for eligibility for refunds from the Taxpayer Relief Fund in fiscal year 2020 and provides an additional $250,000 to allow for the provision of such refunds to eligible taxpayers who file their 2018 taxes after September 1, 2019. As enacted by the 2019 General Assembly, the refunds were only available to those who filed their returns by September 1.)
