The Internal Revenue Service announced Wednesday that the federal tax filing deadline would be moved from April 15 to May 17, and Oregon will follow suit.
“Oregon will be following the IRS new tax deadline of May 17,” said Rich Hoover, a spokesperson for the Oregon Department of Revenue in an email to the Banks Post.
The new deadline is similar to, though not as generous as 2020’s deadline extension, which pushed Tax Day into July, which added three months to taxpayers’ timetable due to the havoc COVID-19 wreaked on businesses and individuals.
More information on exactly what the extension means for Oregon is forthcoming, Hoover said.
