No Foolin’: New York State Not Conforming to IRS Extension for Blizzard Disaster Zones

The New York State Department of Taxation and Finance decided not to extend taxpayers impacted by the December blizzards to May 15th; impacted taxpayers still must either file their tax returns by April 18th or file a valid extension (meaning paying 90% of the tax due).  In order to file a New York return, you must complete your federal tax return.  Thus, the federal disaster extension is near useless for impacted taxpayers.

I’m quite surprised–but then again, maybe I shouldn’t be.  New York is not a taxpayer-friendly state, and this sure isn’t aiding in changing anyone’s mind.
