Comptroller’s Office Extends Tax Deadline in South and East Texas Counties Affected by Recent Weather Events

Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar

Most businesses in state-declared disaster areas affected by recent severe weather will be granted an extension to file certain tax reports, Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar announced today. Tax reports due today and May 25 can now be filed June 1 without penalty.

Some of those reports include sales and use tax, mixed beverage gross receipts tax and gasoline tax. A complete list of due dates for Texas taxes can be found on the Comptroller’s website.

The extension is for taxpayers in Calhoun, Jasper, Jefferson, Kleberg, Newton and Tyler counties. On May 19, Gov. Abbott declared a state of disaster for those counties, which were recently hard hit by significant flooding, tornadoes, hail and damaging winds.
