REMINDER: Single-Use Plastic Bag Ban Began July 1

The General Assembly enacted a plastic bag fee that went into effect on August 1, 2019. In the same legislation that enacted the plastic bag fee, the General Assembly also banned the use of single-use plastic bags to take effect as of July 1, 2021. As the General Assembly has not delayed or otherwise extended the scheduled ban, retailers that are collecting the fee are no longer required to collect the fee as of July 1, 2021. That said, retailers must report and remit the fees that are collected through June 30, 2021. 

Depending on whether the retailer is a monthly, quarterly, or annual filer will dictate the due date on which said retailers must report and remit any fees that are collected through June 30, 2021. To learn more about the guidance and protocols for filing, please click HERE
