IRS provides additional day to file and pay for taxpayers through Wednesday, April 18; IRS processing systems back online

In the latest IRS release (Issue Number: IR-2018-100), April 17th Deadline is pushed to April 18th, as there was a system issue and tool some time to set it right. Here is the details from the IRS release.

WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service announced today that it is providing taxpayers an additional day to file and pay their taxes following system issues that surfaced early on the April 17 tax deadline. Individuals and businesses with a filing or payment due date of April 17 will now have until midnight on Wednesday, April 18. Taxpayers do not need to do anything to receive this extra time.

The IRS encountered system issues Tuesday morning. Throughout the system outage, taxpayers were still able to file their tax returns electronically through their software providers and Free File. Taxpayers using paper to file and pay their taxes at the deadline were not affected by the system issue.

“This is the busiest tax day of the year, and the IRS apologizes for the inconvenience this system issue caused for taxpayers,” said Acting IRS Commissioner David Kautter. “The IRS appreciates everyone’s patience during this period. The extra time will help taxpayers affected by this situation.”

The IRS advised taxpayers to continue to file their taxes as normal Tuesday evening – whether electronically or on paper. Automatic six-month extensions are available to taxpayers who need additional time to file can visit https://www.irs.gov/forms-pubs/extension-of-time-to-file-your-tax-return.

Winter storm extension: Many businesses have extra time to request a 6-month extension

Here is the latest IRS new alert under Issue Number:IR-2018-50 and under this issue…

WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service today granted many businesses affected by severe winter storms additional time to request a six-month extension to file their 2017 federal income tax returns.

The IRS is providing this relief to victims and tax professionals affected by last week’s storm–known as Winter Storm Quinn—and this week’s storm –known as Winter Storm Skylar–that primarily hit portions of the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic.

Business taxpayers who are unable to file their return by the regular due date—Thursday, March 15, 2018–can request an automatic extension by filing Form 7004, on or before Tuesday, March 20, 2018.  Form 7004,  available on IRS.gov, provides a six-month extension for returns filed by partnerships (Forms 1065and 1065-B) and S corporations (Form 1120S).

Eligible taxpayers taking advantage of this relief should write, “Winter Storm Quinn” or “Winter Storm Skylar,” on their Form 7004 extension request (if filing this form on paper).  As always, the fastest and easiest way to get an extension is to file this form electronically.

The IRS will continue to monitor conditions and provide additional relief if circumstances warrant.
