The Department of Revenue Administration Give April 16 Storm Victims Additional 48 Hours to File State Tax Returns
Concord — April 17, 2007 — Paralleling an earlier announcement by the Internal Revenue Service, victims of the major storm affecting several Northeastern states on Monday, April 16 will have two additional days to file their New Hampshire state tax returns beyond the April 17 tax deadline, the New Hampshire Department of Revenue Administration announced today.
Taxpayers directly impacted by the storm have until midnight April 19 to meet their tax filing obligations without incurring late filing and payment penalties.
Across the Northeast, there have been power outages and public transportation problems making it difficult in some cases, if not impossible, for some taxpayers and tax professionals to meet the April 17 filing deadline.
To help prevent confusion about tax deadlines, the DRA is giving Taxpayers the same deadline extension as the IRS,” DRA Commissioner Phil Blatsos said.
Affected taxpayers can mark their paper tax returns with the words “April 16 Storm.”
