President Trump declared a major disaster in Muskogee, Tulsa and Wagoner counties.
Residents who live or have a business in these counties may qualify for the following tax relief:
- Certain deadlines falling between May 7 and September 16 are granted additional time to file through September 16th. This would include quarterly estimated tax payments that are due on June 17, and employment and excise returns due on July 31.
- Taxpayers will qualify for penalty abatement on payroll and excise tax deposits due between May 7 and May 22.
- 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.
- The IRS automatically identifies taxpayers located in the covered disaster area and applies automatic filing and payment relief. But affected taxpayers who reside or have a business located outside the covered disaster area must call the IRS disaster hotline at 866-562-5227 to request this tax relief.
