Iowa Business Tax Return Deadline Extended for Flood Disaster Areas – Counties Continue to be Added


Des Moines, Iowa. The Iowa Department of Revenue (IDR) has granted an extension to file the quarterly Iowa sales/use tax and withholding returns for the period ending June 30, 2014, to taxpayers affected by flooding in the counties for which Gov. Terry E. Branstad has issued a proclamation of disaster emergency.

A current list of counties for which an extension of time has been granted can be found on the IDR website at www.iowa.gov/tax. Taxpayers located in one of the listed counties can file those returns by September 30, 2014 without penalty or interest.

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 IDR's 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.

* IDR's 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, 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.
