EDD and BOE Wildfire Tax Relief

California – Multiple Taxes: Wildfire Relief Extended to Taxpayers in Three More Counties

For taxes and fees they each administer, the California State Board of Equalization (BOE) and the Employment Development Department (EDD) have extended relief to qualifying taxpayers and fee payers who have been affected by wildfires in the counties of Los Angeles, Monterey, and Placer. Both agencies have recently extended similar relief for those affected by wildfires in Santa Cruz and Yuba counties, as reported.

EDD Relief

Employers in Yuba County who were directly affected by the damage resulting from the fire may request up to a 60-day extension of time from EDD to file their state payroll reports and/or deposit state payroll taxes without penalty or interest. Written request for extension must be received within 60 days from the original delinquent date of the payment or return to file or pay. Related information is available on the EDD Web site at http://www.edd.ca.gov/Payroll_Taxes/.

BOE Relief

For taxes and fees it administers, the BOE is giving extensions for filing, audits, billing, notices, and assessments, and relief from subsequent penalties to any individual or business that, as a result of the recent wildfires in Los Angeles, Monterey, and Placer counties, cannot meet tax filing and payment deadlines. A state of emergency was declared in each of the counties due to the wildfires.

Affected taxpayers and fee payers can get special relief in the form of a one-month extension of time to file or pay taxes and fees. Deadlines also are extended for filings that were delayed by the disruption of the normal activities of the U.S. Postal Service or other private mail and freight companies.

Relief from interest and penalties may be provided for those persons who are unable to file their returns or pay taxes and fees in a timely manner. Business owners and fee payers also can replace copies of BOE tax records at no charge.

Relief from the interstate user tax under the International Fuel Tax Agreement applies only to California tax. Also, any claim in either county for property tax relief must be filed with the county assessor’s office.

Mike Habib - Thank you for being so professional and honest and taking care of my brothers IRS situation. We are so relieved it is over and the offer in compromise process went just as you said. Mike is very professional and will give you honest answers to the OIC process and you can really trust him. You won't be sorry you chose him!Joe and Deborah V.
Mike is a true professional. He really came thru for me and my business. Dealing with the IRS is very scary. I'm a small business person who works hard and Mike helped me see that they are not that scary after all. He was always there with the answers I needed and was very good about calling me back which I appreciated since your first reaction is to freak out and ask a million questions. He solved a messy case and worked very hard to resolve it. His rates are VERY reasonable for the amount of work he does! I give him my highest recommendation!Marcie R.
Mike was incredibly responsive to my IRS issues. Once I decided to go with him (after interviewing numerous other tax professionals), he got on the phone with the IRS immediately (as in the same day I signed with him) to squash an impending issue. And he worked directly with them to quickly come to a resolution I am very happy with. I'd highly recommend reaching out to Mike to see if he can help you with any IRS issues. I'm very satisfied!Marshall W.
I’ve seen and heard plenty of commercials on TV and radio for businesses offering tax help. I did my research on many of them only to discover numerous complaints and unresolved tax issues. I found Mike Habib through my own online search and contacted him. He was very professional with great communication, always answering my questions and concerns. Mike resolved my complicated tax problem just as he said he would. I would definitely recommend his services to family and friends.Nancy & Sal V.
