RITA Extends Tax Deadline Because of Power Outages

The new deadline for third-quarter taxes is in November.

Westlake residents who tried to pay their Regional Income Tax Agency bills this week might have had a rude awakening: the agency’s website and phone system were down.

But not to worry—according to a message on the agency’s website, the due date for those third-quarter billing statements has been extended until Nov. 7. The due date for the third quarter is usually on Oct. 31. 

The message notes that a power outage affected the agency's system from Monday night through Wednesday night. The storms caused by Hurricane Sandy caused power outages all over the area this week.

The website and phone systems are up and running again as of Thursday.
