Sometimes the IRS does something right. Hope nobody fainted. On October 7, 2015 the IRS provided people living in Bamberg, Berkeley, Calhoun, Charleston, Clarendon, Colleton, Darlington, Dorchester, Florence, Georgetown, Greenwood, Horry, Kershaw, Lee, Lexington, Orangeburg, Richland, Sumter and Williamsburg Counties in SC with more time to meet their filing requirements. More counties may be added once FEMA continues their damage assessments.
Taxpayers with income tax extensions who live in the affected counties will get until February 16, 2016 to file returns they extended to October 15, 2015. Other tax filings with payments or deadlines starting October 1 will also get the extension to February 16, 2016.
