The New Jersey Division of Taxation announced they are following the federal guidelines for tax relief for victims of Hurricane Ida that the Internal Revenue Service announced at the end of August.
Affected taxpayers include businesses and individuals located in the disaster areas, those whose tax records are in the disaster areas, and relief workers. The IRS has extended deadlines for certain taxpayers affected by Ida who have a responsibility to:
- File returns (except information only returns);
- Pay taxes; and
- Perform certain other time-sensitive acts.
Individuals who had a valid extension to file their 2020 returns, scheduled to run out on October 15, will now have until January 3, 2022 to file their New Jersey tax returns and submit payments. This includes estimated payments, which have either an original or extended due date between August 26, 2021 and January 3, 2022.
In addition, taxpayers may be eligible for abatement of penalty and interest on underpaid tax that would normally accrue during the period of the postponement.
