Iowa Business Tax Return Deadline Extended for Disaster Areas
Taxpayers affected by severe weather and flooding in the counties listed below have been granted an extension by the Iowa Department of Revenue (IDR) to file the quarterly Iowa sales/use tax and withholding returns for the period ending June 30, 2014. Those returns can be filed by September 30, 2014 without penalty or interest, for taxpayers located in one of these counties.
When filing a return on extension for the period ending June 30, 2014, taxpayers should:
- Select the correct period for the return being filed through the IDR eFile & Pay system.
- Choose Apr 1 – June 30, 2014, for the June quarterly return.
- Choose July 1 – Sep 30, 2014, for the September quarterly return.
- File separate returns for June and September; do not combine on one return
- The IDR eFile & Pay system will automatically calculate penalty and interest if the June return is filed after July 31, 2014. IF YOU ARE LOCATED IN ONE OF THE COUNTIES LISTED ABOVE, and file no later than September 30, disregard the penalty and interest calculated for the June 2014 quarter and pay only the tax due.
Courtney Kay-Decker, Director of the Iowa Department of Revenue, is authorized by law to extend the period of time for filing tax returns and to suspend any penalty or interest associated with those returns for taxpayers whose principal residence or business is located in a disaster area declared by the governor. Governor Branstad has declared the counties listed above to be disaster areas.
