NC Extends Tax Filing, Payment Deadline to May 17th

Thursday, March 18, 2021 8:39PM ET

RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) -- North Carolinians looking to file taxes will have about a little more than a month worth of extra time to prepare their taxes. In conjunction with the IRS announcement to extend the federal tax filing date, the state Department of Revenue will also extend its April 15 tax filing and payment deadline to May 17.
As long as North Carolinians file their taxes before May 17, the state will not charge penalties.

However, unless state law is changed, tax payments received after April 15 will be charged interest and will accrue until the date of payment. The deadline extension only applies to individual income tax returns due April 16 and does not apply to trust taxes such as sales and use or withholding taxes or estimated tax payments due April 15, 2021.

The IRS announced on Wednesday that it was delaying the traditional tax filing deadline from April 15 until May 17.

The IRS said taxpayers who owe money would not face any further penalties or interest if they pay by May 17. The new deadline also applies to individuals who pay self-employment tax.

DR. B: new startup working to connect soon-to-be wasted vaccine doses with standby recipients.

The Verge covers Dr. B, the new startup working to connect soon-to-be wasted vaccine doses with standby recipients.

The site: https://hidrb.com/ has users fill out their home zip code and a basic questionnaire to help determine where they fall within state eligibility tiers. When a provider has extra thawed doses, which must be administered within six hours, Dr. B texts nearby participants while giving priority according to local health guidelines.

Since Dr. B has access to granular health information on each participant, the site could help distribute leftover vaccines directly to the most vulnerable. The service is currently operating only for sites in New York and Arkansas, but is vetting over 200 providers across the country.
