Tax Deadline Information
For the best interests of our clients, Mann & Associates intends to proceed with the 4/15/21 filing deadline, with only a few exceptions. The extension to 5/17/21 does not help if the due date for estimated tax payments is not changed. Individual taxpayers who need additional time to file beyond the 5/17/21 deadline can request a filing extension. As of now, California tax law conforms to the Internal Revenue Code (IRC).
