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.
