In 2018, the Iowa legislature enacted Senate File 2417, a state tax reform bill that includes extensive changes to the state’s tax structure. The Department has released updated guidance to explain the following tax change:
In response to Governor Reynolds’ recent disaster declarations for five additional Iowa counties -- Clinton, Decatur, Louisa, Muscatine, Scott, and Wapello -- the Iowa Department of Revenue has granted an extension and suspension of any penalty or interest for taxpayers whose principal residence or business is located in these counties.
Following the release of Internal Revenue Service news release IA-2019-02 on March 25, 2019, providing federal tax relief for Iowans in counties damaged by flooding, the Iowa Department of Revenue is providing similar relief at the state level.
In response to Governor Reynolds’ disaster declarations for many Iowa counties, the Iowa Department of Revenue has granted a 30-day extension and suspension of any penalty or interest for taxpayers whose principal residence or business is located in the disaster areas and whose payment or return is due on or before March 31. This includes all tax types.
