RI delays for 1 week state tax returns, payments
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Superstorm Sandy has forced Rhode Island tax officials to delay for a week state tax returns and payments that were due Wednesday.
The Providence Journal reports (http://bit.ly/Tbx7f8 ) that state tax administrator David M. Sullivan says taxpayers, accountants and tax preparers are coping with extended power failures, flooding and other impacts of the storm that pounded the Northeast on Monday.
The extension applies to the third wage and tax report for 2012 for unemployment insurance tax, the Job Development Fund tax and state Temporary Disability Insurance tax withheld from employees’ wages.
