Thousands of residents of California were recently thrown into confusion after they have received notices of a tax payment deadline in the next three weeks. Reports say the notices were received in the 51 counties that were affected by extreme winter storms, flooding, and mudslides.

However, according to Haring, the 51 counties have already been granted a tax payment deadline extension by October 16. This deadline was extended from the previous May 15 and the standard April 15 dates. Furthermore, the counties reportedly include Ventura, Santa Barbara, San Bernardino, Riverside, Orange, and Los Angeles.
