More information on wildfire/disaster relief November 2020 Tax News

We published an article in our October Tax News, Disaster Relief 2020, outlining how to file for taxpayers in designated disaster areas. Since that time, additional information has been released about special tax filing relief for Californians affected by recent wildfires.

We will extend the time to file 2019 tax returns and pay 2020 estimated taxes due during the disaster period until January 15, 2021, for affected taxpayers in the following counties - Fresno, Los Angeles, Madera, Mendocino, San Bernardino, San Diego, Siskiyou, Napa, Shasta, and Sonoma. This matches the relief that the IRS has provided for these fires. (Announcements IR-2020-237; CA-2020-07).
