The IRS has updated their California disaster related postponement notice (CA-2023-01) to clarify that taxpayers should not ignore late-filing or late-payment notices, even if they qualify for the disaster-related postponement relief.
The notice states that if a taxpayer receives a late-filing or late-payment penalty notice from the IRS that has an original or extended filing, payment, or deposit due date that falls within the postponement period, the taxpayer should call the telephone number on the notice to have the IRS abate the penalty.
However, late-payment or late-filing notices should not be ignored. Taxpayers or their tax professionals should call the number on the notice and explain that the taxpayer qualifies for the disaster postponement relief.
