St. Louis Storms Affecting Your Tax Filing?
Are you feeling a flood of panic, just thinking about trying to file your taxes on time, as you are trying to put your life back together after the Great (or not so great) Storm of December 2015? The IRS has noticed the devastation that those storms has had on our fine city and are extending the tax filing and payment deadlines for all taxes (both federal and state) that are typically due between December 23, 2015 and April 18, 2016 to May 16, 2016.
Extended Tax Deadline
If you were affected by the floods or live in an area affected by the floods, the IRS is providing an extended tax deadline. If you or your business happens to be “lucky” (definitely a matter of perspective) enough to be located in one of the areas identified as affected, penalties and interest which normally start accruing after April 18th won’t start until after May 16th this year!
