Penalty Relief for Taxpayers Affected by Boston Marathon Explosions
FTB will waive the late payment penalty for California taxpayers affected by the Boston Marathon explosions. We already provide an automatic 6-month extension to file a personal income tax return.
Affected taxpayers include:
- Individual taxpayers who live in Suffolk County, MA.
- Victims, their families, first responders, and others impacted by this tragedy who live outside Suffolk County.
- Individual taxpayers whose tax preparers were adversely affected.
Taxpayers will receive a bill for the late payment penalty through our normal process.
To request relief, taxpayers must:
- Pay by July 15, 2013.
- Contact FTB at 800.852.5711 to request relief from the penalty.
By law, interest will still apply on payments made after April 15.
