Storm victims in parts of both states now have until November 15, 2022, to file various individual and business tax returns and make tax payments, the IRS said.
The tax relief postpones tax filing and payment deadlines that occurred starting on July 25, 2022 (Missouri) and July 26, 2022 (Kentucky).
This also applies to individuals who had a valid extension to file their 2021 return due to run out on October 17, 2022, and who will now have until November 15, 2022, to file.
However, because tax payments related to these 2021 returns were due on April 18, 2022, those payments are not eligible for this relief.
The November 15, 2022 deadline also applies to quarterly estimated income tax payments due on September 15, 2022, and the quarterly payroll and excise tax returns normally due on August 1 and October 31, 2022.
Businesses with an original or extended due date also have the additional time including, among others, calendar-year partnerships and S corporations whose 2021 extensions run out on September 15, 2022 and calendar-year corporations whose 2021 extensions run out on October 17, 2022.
