OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – Oklahomans have a little more time to file state and federal taxes due to the historic winter storm in February.

Following a federal emergency declaration, the federal submission deadline was extended to June 15.

The Oklahoma Tax Commission waived penalties and interest on tax returns filed after the normal April filing deadline, essentially postponing the state filing deadline.

If an affected taxpayer receives a late filing or late payment notice from the IRS whose original or extended filing, payment or deposit due date falls within the deferred period, the taxpayer should call the telephone number provided in the notice to notify the IRS Reduce punishment. For information about the services currently available, see the IRS Operations and Services page at IRS.gov/coronavirus.

The IRS automatically identifies taxpayers located in the disaster area covered and applies filing and payment facilities. However, affected taxpayers who reside or have a business outside of the covered disaster area should call the IRS Disaster Hotline at 866-562-5227 to apply for this tax break.
