The following modifications apply to the original tax relief victims of severe winter storms, flooding, landslides, and mudslides in California. The relief period for making tax payments and return filing has been extended from December 27, 2022, through May 15, 2023. Previously, the extension was from January 8, 2023, through May 15, 2023, in the original relief.
