IRS Grants More Deadline Extensions
Taxpayers living in the path of the major storm that affected several Northeastern states on Monday, April 16 will have until Thursday, April 26 to file their federal tax returns, the Internal Revenue Service said.
Filers in the storm region were originally given until April 19 to file, but Sen. Charles Schumer of New York said many people were still dealing with the aftermath of the storm and needed more time than the original two-day extension.
IRS Commissioner Mark Everson announced the extension during a Senate Finance Committee hearing Wednesday.
This week the IRS also granted an extension to the victims of the Virginia Tech shootings, as well as an extension to taxpayers and tax professionals affected by Intuit's e-filing glitches on Tax Day.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
