IRS & FTB Give Tax Relief to Wildfire and Mudslide Victims in Southern California

The IRS announced last week that they are giving tax relief to victims of the Southern California wildfires and mudslides. The IRS extended impacted taxpayers’ deadlines that fell (or will fall) between December 4, 2017 and April 29, 2018 to April 30, 2018. This includes the Form 1040 deadline of April 17th (it will be April 30th for impacted taxpayers). This impacts individuals and businesses who are in Los Angeles, San Diego, Santa Barbara, and Ventura Counties who were impacted by the disasters.

California’s Franchise Tax Board automatically follows federal tax disaster relief, so state tax deadlines will also be postponed on the state level for impacted taxpayers.
