In view of the relentless storms affecting California, the IRS has announced that it will offer tax relief to the victims by extending to May 15, 2023, the deadline to file federal individual and business tax returns and make the related tax payments.
IRS Extends Tax Deadline for California Storm Victims
The massive storms sweeping through California have caused the IRS to offer tax relief to the victims, who will now have until May 15, 2023, to file federal individual and business tax returns and make the related tax payments.
The original deadline for federal individual tax returns and payments was April 18, 2023.
The extended deadline will apply to all the individuals and households that live or have a business in any area designated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The current list of counties that can take advantage of this tax relief include the following counties:
|El Dorado||San Joaquin|
|Glenn||San Luis Obispo|
|Los Angeles||Santa Barbara|
Other localities added later to the disaster area will also qualify for the same tax relief. You can check the updated list on the section Tax Relief in Disaster Situations on the IRS website.
It’s worth noting that farmers who choose to forgo making estimated tax payments and normally file their returns by March 1 will now have until May 15, 2023, to file their 2022 return and pay any tax due.
Additionally, The May 15, 2023, deadline also applies to the quarterly estimated tax payments, normally due on January 17, 2023, and April 18, 2023. This means that individual taxpayers can skip making the fourth quarter estimated tax payment, normally due January 17, 2023, and instead include it with the 2022 return they file, on or before May 15.
