IRS has announced the due date for individual income tax returns is postponed from April 15, 2021, to May 17, 2021.  This includes the payment of balance due amounts for these taxpayers.

HOWEVER, the due date for making estimated tax payments has NOT changed.  Calendar year individuals’ first estimated tax payment is still due April 15, 2021.

Each state has the liberty to decide whether extend their respective deadline, although it is expected that they will follow the action of the IRS.

Relief for Residents of Louisiana, Texas and Oklahoma due to Winter Storm

Victims of winter storms that began February 11, 2021 now have until June 15, 2021, to file various individual and business tax returns and make tax payments.

For instance, certain deadlines falling on or after February 11, 2021, and before June 15, 2021 are postponed through June 15, 2021. This includes 2020 business returns, normally due on March 15 and individual and business returns normally due on April 15. It also includes the special March 1 filing and payment deadline for farmers and fishermen who forgo making estimated tax payments.

This relief applies to ALL businesses and individuals of the entire states of Louisiana, Texas, and Oklahoma.

Penalties and IRS Letters Received

If an affected taxpayer receives a late filing or late payment penalty notice from the IRS that has an original or extended filing, payment or deposit due date that falls within the postponement period, the taxpayer should call the telephone number on the notice to have the IRS abate the penalty.
