IRS and CA Deadlines Extended to October 16, 2023

Taxpayers in most of California now have until Oct. 16, 2023, to file various federal individual and business tax returns and make tax payments. This includes: individual income tax returns, originally due on April 18; various business returns (Partnerships, LLCs, S Corporations, C Corporations, Trusts) normally due on March 15th and April 18; and returns of tax-exempt organizations, normally due on May 15. California has conformed to this relief. 

The Oct. 16 deadline applies to the estimated tax payment for the fourth quarter of 2022, originally due on Jan. 17, 2023 and also applies to 2023 estimated tax payments, normally due on April 18, June 15 and Sept. 15 as well as the March 15th and June 15th California passthrough entity elective tax payments.  Eligible taxpayers will also have until Oct. 16 to make 2022 contributions to their IRAs and health savings accounts.

The IRS automatically provides filing and penalty relief to any taxpayer with an IRS address of record located in the disaster area.  In addition, the IRS will work with any taxpayer who lives outside the disaster area but whose records necessary to meet a deadline occurring during the postponement period are located in the affected area. Taxpayers qualifying for relief who live outside the disaster area but have records in our possession for tax preparation may need to contact the IRS at 866-562-5227.
