Extended Tax Deadline for California Storm Victims
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has made a significant announcement today, providing a much-needed relief to most taxpayers residing in California. The IRS has extended the deadline to file and pay taxes to November 16, 2023. This extension comes in the wake of the natural disasters that hit the state in the past winter.
Postponement from the Regular Spring Deadlines
The regular spring deadlines had been previously postponed to October 16. However, in light of the ongoing recovery efforts from the winter disasters, the IRS has decided to extend this deadline further. Consequently, most individuals and businesses in California now have until November 16 to file their 2022 tax returns and pay any taxes owed.
Eligibility for the Extension
The IRS’s relief covers fifty-five of California’s fifty-eight counties. The only exceptions are Lassen, Modoc, and Shasta counties. The tax relief is based on three separate disaster declarations from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). These declarations cover several severe winter storms, floods, landslides, and mudslides over a period of several months.
