Some good news for those still trying to put their lives back together after April's stormy weather. You may qualify for a state income tax filing extension.
Individuals and businesses in Baldwin, Blount, Dekalb, Etowah, Jefferson, Lee, Limestone, Mobile and Tuscaloosa counties have until October 15 of this year to file certain Alabama tax returns that have a due date between April 28 and October 15 of this year.
Late filing and payment penalties will be waived upon request for those affected.
