Extended Deadline for Some Massachusetts Tax Return Filers
The April 15 deadline for filing federal and state tax returns has been extended until May 11 for many taxpayers in Massachusetts due to the severe rain and floods we experienced in March. The extension is granted to those counties in the state which were declared federal disaster areas as a result of the floods, including Bristol, Essex, Middlesex, Norfolk, Plymouth, Suffolk, and Worcester. There is no need to file anything to take advantage of this extension so long as you meet the extended deadline of May 11. Late filers, you just got more time to procrastinate!
