IRS grants six-month filing extension for mudslide victims

WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) on Friday said it will grant a six-month extension for tax returns for families affected by the mudslide in Snohomish County.

The announcement came a day after four members of the state’s congressional delegation -– Sens. Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell and Reps. Suzan DelBene of Medina and Rick Larsen of Everett –- asked IRS Commissioner John Koskinen for a quick decision on the filing reprieve.

The March 22 mudslide, whose official death toll stands at 30, hit less than a month before the April 15 tax deadline.

Families now have until Oct. 15 to file their 2013 returns.
