Due to the severe storms that hit California this winter, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and Franchise Tax Board (FTB) announced that tax deadlines for State and Federal taxes have been extended for most Californians to October 16, 2023. The extension applies automatically to residents in impacted counties, including those living in Los Angeles County. This means LA County taxpayers now have an additional six months to file their returns and make necessary payments without having to file and extension or provide additional documentation proving direct impact from the weather.
