Texas extends state tax deadline for flood victims

By  | 

Here's some good news if you are cleaning up storm damage and need a little extra help. Texas State Comptroller Susan Combs is allowing residents in four North Texas counties to postpone state taxes if necessary.

Among those included are Cooke, Grayson, Tarrant, and Lampasas Counties . The extension request can be up to 90 days to file state tax returns for June and July.

Combs is also exempting certain recovery-related expenses, including the cost of labor to repair storm-damaged, non-residential property.

This includes:
*office buildings and stores.

*labor charges must be separately states on the repair bill. Texas does not impose sales tax on labor for residential repairs.

*services used to restore storm-damaged property, including dry cleaning of clothes and draperies, rug and carpet cleaning, and appliance repairs.

You can call 1-800-252-5555 to file your request.
