IRS Extends Filing Dates For People In Counties Under Federal Emergency Declarations


The Internal Revenue Service has extended its annual tax return due date by a month for people who live in areas impacted by the recent storms, the IRS announced.

California storm victims now have until May 15 to file their individual or business taxes if their area was declared an emergency by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

The announcement affects residents in Alameda, Marin, Contra Costa, San Francisco, Monterey, Napa, San Joaquin, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, Solano and Sonoma counties, the IRS said.

A full list of counties can be found at


Eligible taxpayers will also have until May 15 to make 2022 contributions to their IRAs and health savings accounts.

Taxpayers will not have to do anything to initiate the extension, the IRS said, and do not have to contact the agency to get this relief.

Some other extensions are being granted to farmers, those who pay quarterly estimated payments, and those who pay quarterly payroll and excise taxes.

I wouldn’t give the IRS any special reason to review my tax return any more than they have to.

Contra Costa County is not included in this extension.

CCC is not listed as a federal declared disaster area per FEMA – 3591-EM; however, this may change in the future.

TTD January 12, 2023 - 12:45 PM - 12:45 PM

Hmm…..I see where the IRS does include CCC; however, FEMA-3591-EM does not include CCC (maybe they have not updated their map yet).

Sounds like they are also installing a built in reason to drag their feet on processing returns or issuing refunds.

PS Taxation is theft.

Taxation *without representation* is theft. There; fixed it for you…

bob January 12, 2023 - 4:37 PM - 4:37 PM

Will the State of Calif. also extend the Date.. IF Not, then you will have to do all the “data” by April 15 anyhow..

Jay Reddick Clemons January 13, 2023 - 10:15 AM - 10:15 AM

April 18th actually, this year. I gotta believe that the likelihood of the FTB matching the IRS extension is near 100%.

TTD January 13, 2023 - 3:50 PM - 3:50 PM

CA just conformed to the federal due date of May 15th.

Hayden Barsotti January 12, 2023 - 5:03 PM - 5:03 PM

Delay granted but with a penalty most likely.
