Do You Get Extra Time to Do Your Taxes? Yes, if You Live in One of These States – CNET

Because of holidays and natural disasters, Tax Day comes later this year for residents of several US states.
Most US taxpayers still have to file their 2023 income tax returns by April 15, 2024.
The majority of US taxpayers have to file income taxes by Monday, April 15. However, there are some notable exceptions to this deadline. Two states get short extensions due to holidays, and certain residents in nine states affected by natural disasters also get extensions from the IRS.
So how do you know when you're required to have your 2023 federal tax return submitted? It depends on which state you live in, and if you were impacted by a natural disaster.
Find out below if you have longer to file your taxes this year. For more, here's when you could get your tax refund and common mistakes that could delay your refund.
For most tax filers, tax returns are due April 15 this year. (Due to Patriot's Day and Emancipation Day, which fall on April 15 and April 16, respectively, Maine and Massachusetts have a tax filing deadline of April 17, 2024.)
Because of severe storms, flooding landslides and other disasters, the IRS has extended the federal tax filing deadlines for several other states with declared disaster areas by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Many tax filers in these states now have a tax deadline of June 17, 2024, to file federal individual and business tax returns and make tax payments. Some locations have even further delays to their federal tax deadlines.
If you live in one of the affected areas with delayed tax deadlines, you can still request a tax extension. If you do, your new filing deadline will be Oct. 15, 2024, although any taxes you owe are due at the time of your first tax deadline.
Nine states have tax deadlines that are after the IRS deadline for federal taxes. (Note that Alaska, Florida, Nevada, New Hampshire, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Washington and Wyoming do not collect income taxes.)
Here are the state filing deadlines that differ from the federal deadline:
