Tax Deadline in California County Has Been Granted an Extension of Several Months!

While most of California may observe Monday, April 15, as Tax Day, citizens of one county have been given a months-long delay.

Because to the devastating floods that happened on January 22, 2024, residents of San Diego County have been given a tax delay, according to Fox 5. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) was able to delay several tax-filing and tax-payment deadlines because the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) designated the area as a disaster area, according to an IRS press statement.

The deadline for filing different federal individual and corporate tax forms and making tax payments is June 17 for residents of San Diego County. Deadlines that happened on or before January 21, 2024, but before June 17, 2024, are covered by this extension.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has advised anybody requiring an extension for submitting their 2023 federal income tax return beyond the June 17 deadline to submit their request electronically by Monday, April 15. Any request for an extension made between April 15 and June 17 must be made on paper. The taxpayer will therefore have until October 15, 2024, to file, regardless of how the extension is obtained; nonetheless, payments are still due on June 17, 2024.

Taxpayers residing in the designated disaster region will be immediately recognized by the IRS, which will then apply filing and payment assistance. To receive this tax assistance, impacted taxpayers who live or operate a company outside of the designated disaster region can contact the IRS disaster hotline at 866-562-5227.

The concerned taxpayer should contact the IRS at the number shown on the notification in order to have the penalty reduced if they receive a late filing or late payment penalty notice from the IRS and their original filing, payment, or deposit due date falls within the postponement period.
