State & Federal Tax Deadline Extended to 11/16/23 for Most CA Taxpayers
By Fernando Jimenez
The California Franchise Tax Board and the Internal Revenue Service have extended the tax deadline until November 16, 2023 for most Californians to file and pay their tax year 2022 taxes and avoid penalties.
All counties qualify for this relief except for Lassen, Modoc, and Shasta counties. IRS compensation is based on three different Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) disaster declarations that include severe winter storms, flooding, landslides, and mudslides.
Individual and business taxpayers automatically receive the extension of time without having to request it as long as their registered address is in a locality affected by a disaster.
Eligible returns and payments include:
- 2022 individual income tax returns and payments normally due on April 18.
- For eligible taxpayers, 2022 contributions to IRAs and health savings accounts.
- Quarterly estimated tax payments normally due on April 18, June 15 and Sept. 15.
- Calendar-year 2022 partnership and S corporation returns normally due on March 15.
- Calendar-year 2022 corporate and fiduciary income tax returns and payments normally due on April 18.
- Quarterly payroll and excise tax returns normally due on May 1, July 31 and Oct. 31.
- Calendar-year 2022 returns filed by tax-exempt organizations normally due on May 15.
If an impacted taxpayer moved to the disaster region after submitting their return, it’s possible that they do not have an IRS address on file there. In these kinds of unusual situations, the impacted taxpayer may get a notification from the IRS about a late filing or late payment penalty for the delay period. To have the penalty waived, the taxpayer should call the number on the notice.
Other returns, payments and time-sensitive tax-related actions also qualify for the extra time. See the IRS disaster relief page for details.
