A Request for an Extension from the California Board of Equalization may be submitted online using eService’s Relief Requests.
All taxpayers, fee payers, and business owners who can't meet filing deadlines because of a disaster may be eligible to receive an extension of up to three-months* to file and pay their taxes and/or fees. This relief is available to any taxpayer or fee payer who works or resides in the counties where a disaster exists and who, as a result of a disaster, cannot meet tax filing and payment deadlines.
The BOE may also extend the deadline for filings that were delayed by disruption of the normal activities of the United States Postal Service or private mail and freight companies. In addition, business owners can apply for relief of penalties and interest for late payments if they are caused by the fire.
* Effective September 9, 2016, the extension available for tax or fee payers affected by a disaster was increased from one-month to up to three months (Assembly Bill 1559).
You must submit your request no later than one month following the due date of your return or your prepayment form. Please be aware that the tax remains due, plus applicable interest.
Note: Relief from penalty and interest may be available to you if you cannot file your tax return on time due to a disaster. A Request for Relief from Penalty and Interest due to Disaster may be submitted online using eService’s Relief Requests.
