Tax deadlines extended for Hurricane Irene victims

BOISE, IDAHO — Sept. 12, 2011 — The Idaho State Tax Commission is extending tax filing and payment deadlines for taxpayers affected by Hurricane Irene in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Puerto Rico, and Vermont.

Taxpayers from the disaster areas have until Oct. 31, 2011, to mail any completed returns along with payments due from the date the disaster struck through Oct. 31. This follows the Internal Revenue Service extension date.

The relief is for all Idaho tax types, including income tax, sales tax, income tax withholding, and others. The relief applies both to individuals and businesses in the disaster areas, as well as to those whose tax records are located there.

To qualify for the extension, taxpayers should write “HURRICANE IRENE” in red ink at the top of their tax return. If they receive penalties or are charged interest for filing returns or paying taxes late, they should call the Tax Commission at 334-7660 in the Boise area or (800) 972-7660 toll free.
