On June 7, 2023, the IRS announced on Twitter that California taxpayers who qualify for the disaster-related tax filing and payment deadline extension still have until October 16, 2023 (August 15, 2023, for Modoc and Shasta counties) to file their 2022 tax returns and pay any outstanding taxes. The IRS also stated that taxpayers who received CP14 letters do not need to take any action.
The IRS has been issuing CP14 letters when taxpayers have a balance due. The IRS has acknowledged that these letters were automatically generated for some taxpayers who qualify for the disaster extension. As a result, taxpayers who qualify for the extension and received a CP14 letter do not need to call the IRS or their tax professional. They can simply disregard the letter and file/pay their taxes by the October 16/August 15 deadline.
