The IRS issued extensions until January 11, 2013, for certain deadlines for affected taxpayers that reside or have a business in areas affected by Hurricane Isaac. Mississippi will follow the federal extension.
The following counties are included:
Adams, Amite, Clarke, Copiah, Forrest, Franklin, George, Hancock, Harrison, Hinds, Jackson, Jefferson, Jones, Lamar, Lincoln, Marion, Pearl River, Pike, Stone, Walthall, Warren, and Wilkinson Counties.
The extension gives affected taxpayers until Jan. 11, 2013, to file most tax returns (including individual, corporate, and estate and trust income tax returns; partnership returns, S corporation returns, and trust returns), or to make tax payments, including estimated tax payments, that have either an original or extended due date occurring on or after Aug. 26 and on or before Jan. 11, 2013.
All returns filed under this extension must be clearly marked in blue or black ink on the top of the return "HURRICANE ISAAC."
This does not apply to any other tax administered by the Department of Revenue.
