Tax Deadline Extension for Storm-Affected Areas in Massachusetts

The IRS has announced tax relief for individuals and businesses in parts of Massachusetts affected by severe storms and flooding starting on September 11, 2023. Affected taxpayers now have until July 31, 2024, to file federal tax returns and make payments. This relief applies to areas designated by FEMA, currently including Bristol and Worcester counties, with potential for additional areas. The extended deadlines cover various tax filings and payments due between September 11, 2023, and July 31, 2024. The IRS will automatically provide relief to taxpayers with addresses in the disaster area, while those outside the area but affected by the disaster must contact the IRS for assistance. Additional tax relief includes options for claiming disaster-related losses and special provisions for retirement plans.
