The IRS has announced that tax filing deadlines for victims of Hurricane Ida in New York have been extended. This extension covers both individual and business filers. The new deadline is January 3, 2022. This extension applies to individuals and businesses located within FEMA areas designated to receive individual or public assistance.
The result of this announcement is that tax filings due on September 1, 2021 are extended to January 3, 2022. This extension also includes tax filers that have previously filed 2020 tax year extensions and who had a deadline of October 15, 2021 to file a return.
To see if you’re qualify for the extension the current list of eligible localities is available on the disaster relief page on IRS.gov. Eligible localities may be added so it pays to check the IRS website regularly.
As always Beige Law is ready to help taxpayers who may have been impacted by Hurricane Ida with their IRS and New York State tax issues.
