KENTUCKY taxpayers now have until November 15 to file tax returns and make tax payments.
This is the second tax extension this year as the first is in October fifteen.
But the second deadline applies only to storm victims in certain parts of Kentucky, according to a statement from the International Revenue Service (IRS).
This postpones tax returns and payment deadlines that have occurred from July 26, 2022.
According to the IRS, tax payments related to 2021 tax returns due on April 18, 2022 are not eligible for renewal.
The new November 15, 2022 deadline also applies to quarterly estimated income tax payments due on September 15, 2022.
Plus the quarterly payroll and consumption tax returns, which are normally due on August 1st and October 31st, 2022.
Corporations with an original or extended maturity date also have the additional time, including: calendar year partnerships and S corporations whose 2021 renewals expire on September 15, 2022, and calendar year corporations whose 2021 renewals expire on October 17, 2022.
The statement also mentions penalties for payroll and excise deposits due on or after July 26 and before August 10, where deposits are paid by August 10, 2022.
Which taxpayers get the extension?
Residents in areas determined by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to qualify for individual or public assistance will receive the extension.
Taxpayers who reside or have a corporation in the following Kentucky counties are eligible for tax relief:
The same relief will be available for any other location later added by FEMA.
The current list of eligible locations is on the Disaster Relief page on IRS.gov.
