Tax Filing Deadline Postponed



Victims of Hurricane Ian now have until February 15, 2023, to file various individual and business tax returns and make tax payments.

Individuals and households affected by Hurricane Ian that reside or have a business anywhere in the state of Florida qualify for tax relief.

This means individuals who had a valid extension to file their 2021 return due to run out on October 17, 2022, will now have until February 15, 2023, to file. The IRS noted, however, that because tax payments related to these 2021 returns were due on April 18, 2022, those payments are not eligible for this relief.

The February 15, 2023, deadline applies to the quarterly estimated tax payments, normally due on January 17, 2023, and to the quarterly payroll and excise tax returns normally due on October 31, 2022, and January 31, 2023. Businesses with an original or extended due date also have the additional time, including calendar-year corporations whose 2021 extensions run out on October 17, 2022.

Affected taxpayers in a federally declared disaster area have the option of claiming disaster-related casualty losses on their federal income tax return for either the year in which the event occurred, or the prior year. Individuals may deduct personal property losses that are not covered by insurance or other reimbursements.
