Tennessee residents have been given a few more months to file their taxes in the wake of severe storms that ravaged the Volunteer State.

The delay in filing taxes gives residents and households in Cannon, Hardeman, Hardin, Haywood, Lewis, Macon, McNairy, Rutherford, Tipton, and Wayne counties more time to file their taxes for this tax season. The new deadline, set for July 31, comes after the state of Tennessee endured massive storms on March 31, the Internal Revenue Service announced Monday.

Beyond delaying the April 18 deadline, this delay also allows eligible taxpayers to make 2022 contributions to their Individual Retirement Accounts and health savings accounts through July 31. Additionally, quarterly payroll and excise tax returns, which had been due on April 30 this year, have been pushed back to the same date at the end of July.

The current list of areas eligible for this relief is available on the IRS’s disaster relief page and will be updated as more areas get added later on.

The IRS has delayed the tax filing deadline to July 31 for many states affected by weather, including areas in California and Alabama. The most recent state to be eligible for this delay is Arkansas, which underwent extreme storms and tornadoes in several areas of the state.

Several states that have not had their tax filing deadline delayed but do not have taxes due on April 18 include Virginia and Iowa, both of which have a May 1 deadline, Delaware, where taxes are due May 2, and Louisiana, where taxes are due on May 15.

For most states, taxes this year are due on April 18, not April 15, when taxes are normally due. This is because April 15 falls on a weekend this year, and April 17 is recognized as Emancipation Day in Washington, D.C., and all D.C. holidays affect tax deadlines across the United States.
