The Idaho State Tax Commission is extending deadlines to file and pay taxes for victims of the Oregon wildfires and straight-line winds.
The relief postpones tax deadlines that fall from September 7, 2020, through January 14, 2021. As a result, affected taxpayers will have until January 15, 2021, to file returns and pay taxes that were originally due during this period. The deadline extension is for all Idaho tax types, including income tax, sales tax, fuels tax, and income tax withholding. It applies to individuals and businesses in the disaster areas, as well as to those whose tax records are located there. The Tax Commission is offering the relief to taxpayers in any area designated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) as qualifying for individual assistance. An up-to-date list of eligible areas is available on the disaster relief page at IRS.gov.
Affected taxpayers should write “OREGON WILDFIRES” or “OREGON WINDS” in red ink at the top of their tax return to qualify for the extension. Those who file electronically should call the Tax Commission toll free at (800) 972-7660. (Idaho State Tax Commission)
