The Internal Revenue Service is providing taxpayers in Colorado an extension until Oct. 15, 2014 to decide when to claim disaster losses arising from last September’s flooding.

The extension means that eligible individuals and businesses will now have until Oct. 15 to decide whether to claim these losses on either their 2012 or 2013 returns. Without this extension, these taxpayers would have had to make this choice by the original due date for the 2013 return, usually April 15.
