Update on the GCB note on their website dated 4/10/2020.
We have heard from several organizations that they will be unable to meet the April 20, 2020 filing deadline for the cash audit and the March monthly reports (LG 100A, LG100C and LG100F). Some Gambling Managers have indicated that they do not have remote access to their computers and/or they do not have access to the site where the records are kept. Others are concerned that traveling to a site to compile the information necessary to complete the reports will force them to violate the Governor’s Stay-at-Home Order and potentially jeopardize their health and safety. Director Gettman has indicated that there will no blanket extension of time for the filing of the reports, but that extensions will be granted upon request.
Extension requests need to be submitted to your compliance specialist by email (http://www.mn.gov/gcb/board-staff.html) and need to include the following information:
a) Name and license number of organization.
b) A request for a filing extension for the Account Verification Review (cash audit) and/or the March monthly reports.
c) The reason a filing extension is needed (e.g. lack of access to records). Note that a GM being laid off or furloughed is not acceptable as an organization is required to have a GM in place in order to continue to be licensed. (see Wednesday’s ACM Update).
d) The date by which the organization can file the information (e.g. one week following the lifting of the Stay-at Home Order, or two weeks following the lifting of the order closing the bars and restaurants). Make sure you request whatever time you need in order to meet your particular circumstances.
If you know of Gambling Managers who may not have access to email at this time, please pass this information along to them.
