BOISE, Idaho (KIFI) – The Idaho State Tax Commission is extending deadlines for filing and paying taxes for victims of Hurricane Ida.

For victims in Louisiana, the relief moves the tax deadlines from August 26, 2021 to January 2, 2022. As a result, affected taxpayers are required to file returns and pay taxes by January 3, 2022 that were originally due during that period.

For victims in parts of Mississippi, the relief moves the tax deadlines from August 28, 2021 to October 31, 2021. As a result, affected taxpayers have until November 1, 2021 to file tax returns and pay taxes originally due during that time.

Idaho adheres to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) extended deadlines. This includes postponing the extended filing deadline of October 15, 2021 with an additional extension to filing the 2020 income tax return. However, the October 15 extension is only an extension of the filing, not the payment. Interest will continue to be paid on all taxes paid after May 17, the original Idaho Income Tax due date.

The new deadlines apply to all types of Idaho taxes, including income tax, sales tax, fuel tax, and income tax withholding. They apply to individuals and companies in the disaster areas as well as to those whose tax records are located there.

The Tax Commission offers taxpayers relief in all areas that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) designates as eligible. An up-to-date list of eligible areas is available on the Disaster Relief page on IRS.gov.

Affected taxpayers should write “HURRICANE IDA” at the top of their tax returns to qualify for renewals. Those filing electronically should call the Tax Commission toll-free at (800) 972-7660.

These taxpayers should also call the toll-free number if they:

  • Penalties or interest will be charged for late levies or late tax payments.
  • They are on a payment schedule or are working with the tax commission to settle their tax debts.
  • Have questions.
