Tax deadline relief in aftermath of hurricane

The Tax Division has just issued tax deadline relief in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.

Certain business-related filings and payments that would normally be due by midnight tonight will instead be due by November 7.

Rhode Island Tax Administrator David M. Sullivan said, “Many taxpayers and small businesses –and their tax preparers – have suffered through extended power outages, flooding, and other effects of the storm. We are therefore giving these taxpayers and preparers some extra time to file the required returns and pay the required tax. It’s the least we can do.”
