Delaying Taxes

WASHINGTON (CN) - More taxpayers may take advantage of the IRS' allowing those in combat and disaster to delay in making certain tax deadlines, according to a new regulation.

Previously, the Internal Revenue Service could ignore deadlines for certain acts for up to a year when a taxpayer's address was in an area of combat or a federally declared disaster. This regulation allows postponement if the taxpayer was in a disaster area when the event occurred, was injured or killed during that time, or the records used to prepare a tax document are in the disaster area.

The tax filing due date does not change, so due dates relied on in other statutes remain the same.
