Tax Deadline Extended to April 18 - Later for Filers in Disaster Areas
Most Americans consider April 15 an unofficial “holiday” with the final rush to file federal income tax at midnight. The Internal Revenue Service has given taxpayers a little more time in 2023.
This year, you have have until April 18 to file taxes, but some tax payers living overseas and those in disaster areas may have later filing deadlines. Disaster-area taxpayers in most of California and parts of Alabama and Georgia now have until Oct. 16, 2023, to file various federal individual and business tax returns and make tax payments.
The extension in disaster areas of the country also extends the deadline for quarterly tax payments as well as IRA contributions. Small businesses and the self-employed in disaster stricken areas may take advantage of special tax law provisions to recover financially from the impact of a disaster, especially when the federal government declares their location to be a major disaster area.
