Severe Storms Impact Nebraska Tax Filing Deadlines

April 2019 | Article

In March, parts of Nebraska were hit with severe weather that included straight-line winds and flooding. Following a disaster declaration from President Trump, the IRS announced that affected Nebraska taxpayers in certain areas will receive tax relief for income tax returns and payments, quarterly estimated income tax payments and 2018 IRA contributions. Certain deadlines that were normally due on or after March 9, 2019, have been postponed to July 31, 2019.

Among other things, this Nebraska tax relief automatically extends the due date for affected individual and corporation returns that normally would be due April 15, 2019; these returns are now due July 31, 2019.

Individuals who reside or have a business in the following counties and areas qualify for the deadline extension:

  • Boone
  • Buffalo
  • Butler
  • Cass
  • Colfax
  • Custer
  • Dodge
  • Douglas
  • Knox
  • Nemaha
  • Richardson
  • Sarpy
  • Saunders
  • Thurston
  • Washington
  • Santee Sioux Nation

In addition, penalties on payroll and excise tax deposits due on or after March 9, 2019, and before March 25, 2019, in these areas will be abated as long as the deposits were made by March 25, 2019.
