Your Filing Deadlines May Have Changed
The IRS and Franchise Tax Board are offering California storm victims a tax extension after the state was hit with a period of severe weather. While Tuesday, April 18, 2023, is the tax filing deadline for most Americans, the deadline for residents in designated areas of California has been extended by one month.
According to the IRS, the tax relief postpones various tax filing and payment deadlines that occurred starting Jan. 8, 2023. Those affected have until May 15, 2023, to file returns and pay any taxes that were originally due during this period. This 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. California has conformed their filing dates to these dates.
Eligible taxpayers will also have until May 15 to make 4th quarter estimated tax payments, 2022 contributions to their IRAs and health savings accounts.
After a very successful implementation during 2022, we have increased our use of SafeSend technology for 2023.
