Recognizing the monumental toll the wildfire disaster has taken on Maui and Hawaii counties, the IRS has further extended various Hawaii tax deadlines for affected individuals and businesses. Eligible taxpayers now have until Aug. 7, 2024 to meet certain tax obligations, including filing their 2023 federal tax returns. (Originally, the Hawaii IRS tax deadline was extended to Feb. 15, 2024.)

As with other state tax deadline extensions issued this year due to natural disasters, the IRS extension for Hawaii is designed to mitigate some of the immediate financial pressures many Hawaiians are grappling with during this pivotal recovery phase.
