Idaho Follows Trend, Moves Back Tax Deadline
There are very few things in life that I perpetually dread. I love my cat, but I HATE cleaning the litter box. I love doing laundry, but I absolutely HATE folding clothes once they're out. I love making money (like I'm sure you do, too) but wow, do I hate to do my taxes. If you're like me-- in that anti-tax boat--just know that you've got a deadline extension coming your way. Yes, a whole extra month.
We originally shared with you just a week ago that the IRS had announced they would be moving back that dreaded Federal Tax deadline to May 17th. The move was announced as an accommodation to the public as we STILL work to navigate this pandemic. Perhaps access to tax professionals, appointment availability, or just time to prepare in general is limited. The Internal Revenue Service just wants to make sure you aren't rushed and hit with late fees and other fines.
For some states, that is where it stops. While living in the State of Washington during my college years--taxes were a little simpler. One federal filing and I could call it a day. Here in Idaho, there are some extra steps. We have the great privilege of paying and filing Idaho Income Tax!
It would have been wildly inconvenient to have a May 17th deadline for federal taxes and an April deadline for state taxes-- why not just do them all at once? So, our fearless leader Governor Brad Little has said that Idaho will be temporarily changing the tax deadline to May 17, 2021!
Hopefully, this compliments the move made by the IRS and will give you time to get things in order.
