4 members of delegation ask for tax extension for victims of mudslide

Four members of Washington’s congressional delegation representing Snohomish County on Thursday asked the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to extend the tax-filing deadline for victims of the mudslide in Oso.

The IRS in the past has granted such reprieve for victims of natural disasters. Most recently, it gave a six-month extension for people affected by September 2013 flooding in Colorado.

Sens. Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell and Reps. Rick Larsen of Everett and Suzan DelBene of Medina wrote to IRS Commissioner John Koskinen asking for quick assurance about the looming April 15 filing deadline.

“It is imperative that the IRS issue tax relief and guidance, including postponement of individual income tax filing requirements, as soon as possible for taxpayers in Snohomish County,” they wrote.
