Hurricane Areas and E-filing for 2016 Tax Year


Just a reminder that taxpayers who need to file a 2016 federal tax return electronically, should do so by Saturday, November 18, 2017. On November 18, 2017 the IRS is shutting down their e-filing system so they can get ready for the new tax season. It will remain closed for e-filing until January 1, 2018.

Most taxpayers have already filed their 2016 federal tax return, but if you live in an area that was federally declared a disaster area (hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria, for example and wildfire victims in California) and you obtained a 6-month extension of time to file then you have until January 31, 2018 to file your federal 2016 tax return.

If you are running late on your preparation and will not be ready to e-file by Saturday, November 18, 2017, you can still file a paper tax return between then and January 1st. See a licensed tax professional for further information or to assist you in your preparation and filing for 2016 tax year.
