Eligible individual taxpayers in certain areas designated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) now have until February 15, 2023, to file their 2021 tax returns (if they filed a valid extension earlier this year).

However, the IRS said, “that because tax payments related to these 2021 returns were due on April 18, 2022, those payments are not eligible for this relief.”

In addition, business filers receive an extension until February 15, 2023, to make quarterly payments, and file quarterly payroll and excise tax returns, including businesses that filed extensions.

This business tax filing relief varies by state and includes tax-exempt organizations:
