Storm counties get extra time to file taxes

April 13, 2007

Albany-  The tax deadline is nearing and tax preparers will be working overtime this weekend to get everyone's taxes done on time. H&R Block had a line of people waiting Friday afternoon.

H&R Block has extended their hours and some stores will be open both Saturday and Sunday to help last minute returns. Residents living in one of the nine federally declared disaster counties will get some extra time to prepare their returns.

"Normally the extension this year is through April 17th, but people that are in the federal disaster areas are extended through April 30-th of this month," Cliff Bush, H&R Block.

That extension includes everyone in Baker, Dougherty, Mitchell, Sumter, Taylor, and Worth Counties.

Tax Preparers however say you shouldn't wait. H&R Block will be open until the last customer files their taxes on the 17th, you can also file electronically through their office.
