Extended Tax Deadline for California Storm Victims: What You Need To Know
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has reacted to the storms hitting California by announcing today that it will offer tax relief to the California storm victims, giving them until May 15, 2023, (instead of April 18, 2023) to file individual and business tax returns and make tax payments.
The extension includes 2022 individual income tax returns due on April 18, as well as various 2022 business returns normally due on March 15 and April 18.
The extension applies to individuals and households that reside or have businesses in any area designated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The current list includes the following counties:
|El Dorado||San Joaquin|
|Glenn||San Luis Obispo|
|Los Angeles||Santa Barbara|
Localities that are added later to the disaster area will also qualify for the same relief. To check the updated list, visit the Tax Relief in Disaster Situations section on the IRS website.
it’s worth noting that the extended deadline also applies to the quarterly payroll and excise tax returns normally due on Jan. 31 and April 30, 2023. In addition, penalties on payroll and excise tax deposits due on or after Jan. 8, 2023, and before Jan. 23, 2023, will be abated as long as the tax deposits are made by Jan. 23, 2023.
