The IRS allowed Californians not to pay taxes until October, but now it has changed its mind and is demanding money from them
Some California taxpayers are reported to be receiving notifications that their taxes are due this month, although that period was extended for most Californians in January due to severe weather emergencies. The edition told in more detail MSN.
Jeff Boger of Stanislaus County received a notice in the mail that his taxes were due by June 26th.
“We thought that we need to pay before October 16, so we planned the budget that way,” he said.
Stanislaus County is one of more than 40 California counties that received relief from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) earlier this year due to the severe winter storms, flooding and mudslides the state has endured.
In January, the IRS announced that victims of severe winter storms, flooding and mudslides in California that began on January 8, 2023 must by October 16, 2023, file tax returns for individuals and legal entities and make tax payments.
Alameda, Colus, Contra Costa, Eldorado, Fresno, Glenn, Humboldt, Kings, Lake, Los Angeles, Madera, Marin, Mariposa, Mendocino, Merced, Mono, Monterey, Napa, Orange, Placer, Riverside, Sacramento, San Benito, San Bernardino, San Diego, San Francisco, San Joaquin, San Luis Obispo, San Mateo, Santa Barbara, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, Solano, Sonoma, Stanislaus, Sutter, Tejama, Tulare, Ventura, Yolo and Yuba are eligible.
“I just want to know if this is a mistake or if it was done on purpose. Have we misunderstood the rules for disaster relief? Boger is surprised. “I don’t understand how this happened.”
Sacramento accountant Denise Mulhern says he gets a lot of calls from clients.
“It can be very unnerving,” she said of the notifications. - When I prepare taxes, I inform clients that if you are in California, namely in the affected county, you have time until the extended deadline of October 16th. But when they get this notice or letter, they call me, they call the IRS.”
According to Denise, the first step is not to panic, the second is not to ignore the notification. She hopes the IRS will stop sending letters to those in affected areas to reduce anxiety and misinformation.

Boger cut phones for two days trying to get information. After spending several hours on standby and talking to four or five separate agents, he finally got an answer.
“I was told not to worry,” he remarked.
While some of his anxiety has lessened, he says it is not yet certain that the situation has been resolved. Others have the same concerns.
“I just wanted to draw attention to a potentially broader issue that needs to be addressed,” Boger concluded.
