The IRS has announced (IR-2013-43) a three-month tax return filing and payment extension to Boston area taxpayers and others affected by explosions at the Boston Marathon on April 15. The IRS will issue a notice giving eligible taxpayers until July 15, 2013, to file their 2012 returns and pay any taxes normally due on April 15. No filing and payment penalties will be due as long as returns are filed and payments are made by July 15. By law, interest will still apply to any payments made after the April deadline, the IRS said. The IRS will automatically provide this extension to anyone living in Suffolk County. Eligible taxpayers living outside Suffolk County can claim the extension by calling (866)562-5227 beginning April 23. Eligible taxpayers who receive penalty notices from the IRS can also call the number to have the penalties abated.
