Idaho is offering disaster tax relief for taxpayers affected by Hurricane Maria.
The Idaho State Tax Commission has announced that it is extending state tax filing and payment deadlines for taxpayers in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Taxpayers from designated disaster areas have until January 31, 2018, to mail any completed tax returns, along with payments due from September 16 through January 31.
The relief is for all Idaho tax types, including income tax, sales tax, fuels tax, and income tax withholding, among others. The extension applies both to individuals and businesses in the disaster areas, as well as to those whose tax records are located there.
To qualify for the extension, affected taxpayers are advised to write “HURRICANE MARIA” in red ink at the top of their tax return. Taxpayers who file electronically, receive penalties, or are charged interest for filing returns or paying taxes late are advised to call the Tax Commission at (800) 972-7660.
