Farmer Filing Deadline Pushed Back

On January 18, 2013, the IRS announced that the March 1 filing deadline for farmers that don’t pay estimated taxes has been moved back to April 15, 2013.  That’s welcome relief for farmers!  The lateness of tax legislation delayed the IRS from preparing forms necessary for processing returns (particularly Form 4562 which is used to report depreciation).  To be able to use the April 15 deadline instead of March 1 for a farm return, the taxpayer must complete Form 2210-F and check the waiver box.  The form must be attached to the return.  IRS Announcement, IR 2013-7.
