Tax-Filing and Tax-Payment Deadline Postponed to November 16, 2023 for Most California Taxpayers

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has postponed the tax filing and tax payment deadline for most California taxpayers to November 16, 2023. This extension applies to individuals and businesses in 55 of California’s 58 counties except for Lassen, Modoc, and Shasta counties.

The extension is due to the severe winter storms, flooding, landslides, and mudslides that affected California in early 2023. The IRS is providing this relief to help taxpayers who were impacted by these disasters.

Taxpayers who qualify for the extension will have until November 16, 2023, to file their 2022 tax returns and pay any tax due. They will also have until November 16, 2023, to make estimated tax payments for 2023.

Taxpayers who are unsure whether they qualify for the extension should visit the IRS website or call the IRS Disaster Hotline at 1-800-563-4672.

Additional Details About The Extension

  • The extension applies to individuals who live in or have a business in one of the affected counties.
  • The extension also applies to individuals who work in one of the affected counties but live in another state.
  • The extension does not apply to individuals living in one affected county but working in another state.
  • Taxpayers who qualify for the extension do not need to file an extension request.
  • Taxpayers who owe taxes and cannot pay by November 16, 2023, should contact the IRS to discuss payment options.

The IRS is committed to providing relief to taxpayers who are affected by natural disasters.

The California Franchise Tax Board (FTB) has not issued a response at this time. We are waiting to see whether the FTB will conform to the federal extension and will provide an update. UPDATE: The FTB has conformed to the federal extension deadline. Read about the update.
