Local storm victims may qualify for tax-filing extensions

Jerome Horton, vice chairman of the California State Board of Equalization (BOE), last week announced that extensions for filing, audits, billing notices, assessments and relief from subsequent penalties are available for those individuals and/or businesses impacted by the recent storms in Los Angeles County.
The governor had declared a state of emergency in five California counties due to a series of winter storms, including Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Francisco and Siskiyou Counties.
Emergency relief for taxpayers and fee payers may include extensions for filing returns or to make payments, relief of interest and penalties, and expediting copies of BOE tax records. Any taxpayer or fee payer who, as a result of the storms, cannot meet tax filing and payment deadlines may apply. The BOE may also extend the deadline for filings that were delayed by disruption of the normal activities of the U.S. Postal Service or other private mail and freight companies.
