Flood Recovery Information
The Department of Revenue is committed to supporting the recovery efforts of individuals and businesses impacted by flooding. Natural disasters can prevent citizens from conducting business and accessing the documents they need to be in compliance with state law. This resource page will provide you with important information you may need in the event of a natural disaster.
The Department has granted the same deadline extension as recently announced by the Internal Revenue Services (IRS). Specifically, the IRS has postponed certain deadlines for taxpayers who reside or have a business in the disaster area to Aug. 31, 2017. The extension applies to deadlines falling on or after April 28, 2017, and before Aug. 31, 2017. For information about the tax extension, see the Department's June 8, 2017 news release or refer to the IRS news release.
Taxpayers requesting an extension should note the following on their returns when filed: “May 2017 flood extension.” If an affected taxpayer receives a late filing or late payment penalty notice from DOR that has an original or extended filing, payment or deposit due date that falls within the postponement period, the taxpayer should call the phone number on the notice to have the DOR abate the penalty.
Individuals who reside or have a business in the following counties may qualify for relief: Bollinger, Butler, Carter, Douglas, Dunklin, Franklin, Gasconade, Howell, Jasper, Jefferson, Madison, Maries, McDonald, Newton, Oregon, Osage, Ozark, Pemiscot, Phelps, Pulaski, Reynolds, Ripley, Shannon, St. Louis, Stone, Taney, and Texas.
