Hurricane Relief Extends Tax Payment Deadline to February 15 for Qualifying States

Hurricane Relief Extends Tax Payment Deadline to February 15 for Qualifying States

According to IRS Notice 2021-254, individuals and businesses affected by Hurricane Ida in Louisiana and Mississippi, as well as parts of New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania, now have until February 15, 2022, to file various individual and business tax returns and pay any taxes that were originally due during this period. This is an update to the tax relief provided for the September and October filing deadlines, which were extended to January 3, 2022.

The updated relief postpones tax filing and payment deadlines that occurred starting on dates that vary by state:

  • Aug. 26, 2021 for Louisiana,
  • Aug. 28, 2021 for Mississippi,
  • Aug. 31, 2021 for Pennsylvania and
  • Sept. 1, 2021 for New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.

Individuals who have not yet filed their 2020 tax return due to valid extensions to October 15, 2021, will have until February 15, 2022, to do so; however, the related tax payments are not eligible for this relief as they were due on May 17, 2021. Quarterly estimated income tax payments due on September 15, 2021, and January 18, 2022, may be skipped for both the third and fourth quarters of 2021 and included with their 2021 return.

Quarterly payroll and excise tax returns due on November 1, 2021, and January 31, 2022, will also receive an extension. Businesses and tax-exempt organizations whose 2020 extensions ran out within the covered period are also eligible for the February 15, 2022, extension.

The full notice may be found through the IRS website.
