Tax Day is May 15 For Parts of Calif.

Posted by taxguru on January 11, 2023

Because of April 15 falling on a Saturday this year, along with DC’s special Emancipation Day holiday on April 17, the official IRS Tax Day for filing most kinds of 2022 income tax returns (or extensions) is Tuesday, April 18, 2023.

As happened last year here in Florida, with Hurricane Ian, when a Federally Declared disaster hits a large part of the country, IRS has the power to provide extra time for those taxpayers and preparers who were in those affected areas.

Less than two weeks into the new year and IRS has already given such an extension to many parts of California.

IRS News Release:
California storm victims qualify for tax relief; April 18 deadline, other dates extended to May 15

Unlike the Hurricane Ian deadline extension, which encompassed the entire state of Florida, this new one currently only covers the following named counties:

Colusa, El Dorado, Glenn, Humboldt, Los Angeles, Marin, Mariposa, Mendocino, Merced, Monterey, Napa, Orange, Placer, Riverside, Sacramento, San Bernardino, San Diego, San Joaquin, San Luis Obispo, San Mateo, Santa Barbara, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, Solano, Sonoma, Stanislaus, Sutter, Tehama, Ventura, Yolo and Yuba

As the press release says, this list may need to be expanded as things develop out there on the Left Coast.

We have several Calif clients who do benefit from this one month delay under the current list, but clients in our old stomping grounds of Alameda and Contra Costa counties weren’t hit hard enough by the storms to qualify at this time.

[Update 1/11/23] – IRS has added the following Calif. counties to the list of those qualifying for the May 15 filing deadline:
Alameda, Contra Costa, Fresno, Kings, Lake, Madera, Mono, San Benito, San Francisco, and Tulare counties.

[Update 1/13/23] – As was expected, the Calif Franchise Tax board has gone along with this filing extension for storm affected counties, including the ones recently added by IRS.
