2024-14: FTB says no disaster filing or payment postponement for now

In response to our inquiry regarding a possible postponement, the FTB issued the following statement:

“FTB is tracking official announcements from the IRS on any income tax relief for presidentially declared disasters in California. Aside from the tax relief announcement for San Diego County issued on February 27, 2024, we have not seen any additional official announcements from the IRS for the state of California.

It is important to note, the Governor’s request for federal assistance for these nine counties was for Public Assistance only. Typically, the IRS does not extend the due date for public assistance only.

San Diego County is the only county that has an extension to June 17.

April 15 remains and will remain the due date for these nine counties for California income tax purposes.”

Should the IRS issue any postponement announcement we will send another Flash E-mail.
