For tax year 2020, taxpayers residing in federally declared disaster areas who require additional time to file beyond the extended deadline (June 15, 2021), should file a Form 4868 by May 17, 2021 to obtain a filing extension up to October 15, 2021. For both paper and electronic submissions, Form 4868 filing and accompanying payments must be submitted by the May 17, 2021 deadline.
As of May 4th, 2021, these are the current federally declared disaster zones; Alabama, Kentucky, Louisiana, Oklahoma, & Texas. Locate the applicable disaster to determine what relief is available, and whether any changes should be reported on the tax return: Tax Relief in Disaster Situations.
Relief is often an extension of time to file or make certain payments for clients in the affected area.
