Payam Javan: Due to yet another extension granted by the Internal Revenue Service for storm-devastated California, citizens, and businesses in California who were impacted by the devastating winter storms have until October 16 to file their federal taxes.
For counties identified by the Federal Disaster Management Agency as disaster regions, the IRS has previously extended the tax due to May 15.
In addition to listing all nine counties in the Bay Area as disaster zones, the FEMA designation named 41 of California’s 58 counties as being affected by the storms, flooding, landslides, and mudslides that started on December 27. The agency added that contributions to eligible taxpayers’ IRAs and health savings accounts made in 2022 will be covered by the extension.
According to the government, taxpayers don’t need to take any action to take advantage of the deadline extension since it automatically identified individuals who were in the disaster-designated zones.
