extended tax deadline
OCTOBER 16, 2023
for select Alabama, California, and Georgia Taxpayers
Important Alert | March 6, 2023
Following recent natural disasters, the IRS has announced that affected individuals and businesses in Alabama, California, and Georgia now have until October 16, 2023, to file — and pay — their taxes. The extension comes after the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) declared a disaster in certain counties in the three states, allowing the IRS to postpone specific tax-filing and tax-payment deadlines for eligible taxpayers.
Which counties are eligible for the extended deadline?
The extended deadline is intended for taxpayers residing— or conducting business in —certain counties in the Alabama, California, or Georgia. If you live in one of these counties, contact your local Liberty Tax pro to confirm your eligibility for the extended October 16 deadline!

What does the extended tax deadline mean?
This year, the standard tax deadline falls on April 18. Now, eligible taxpayers have until October 16, 2023, to file their taxes.
In addition, affected farmers who forgo making estimated tax payments and usually file their returns by March 1, 2023, will have until the extended October 16, 2023 deadline to file their returns and pay any taxes due.
