IRS Letter Indicating No Valid Extension Filed

Many taxpayers are receiving letters from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) stating the IRS was unable to grant an extension of time to file because the extension was not requested by the return due date.

On February 25, 2021, the IRS announced the due date of returns that were due on or after February 8, 2021, and before June 15, 2021, for residents of Oklahoma, Texas and Louisiana were extended automatically to June 15, 2021.  As such, for residents of those states, the due date of the extension of time to file a tax return was also extended until June 15, 2021.

Unfortunately, now the IRS is sending letters to some individual and business taxpayers stating that the extension requested by the taxpayer was not filed timely. If you are a resident of or operate a business in Oklahoma, Texas or Louisiana and filed a valid extension on or before June 15, 2021, you can relax because these letters are sent in error.

If you receive a letter from the IRS or state, please forward it to us and we will answer the letter on your behalf. We will correspond with the appropriate authority and indicate that you have a valid extension under the IRS announcement.
