The Department of Taxation will grant an automatic extension of time to December 15, 1996, for filing 1995 Hawaii income tax returns by United States military personnel and active duty Hawaii National Guard and Reserve personnel serving in Bosnia in "Operation Joint Endeavor" on or after March 15, 1996. Bosnia has not been defined as a combat zone, but administrative relief is being offered based on past policy.
RE: Administrative Extension of Time for Taxpayers Serving in Bosnia in
"Operation Joint Endeavor" on or after March 15, 1996
A taxpayer filing this type of tax return should write in red lettering
at the top of the return "Operation Joint Endeavor". The taxpayer will
not be charged penalties for the failure to file a return or failure to
pay the tax. However, interest on any balance of taxes due will be charged
from April 23, 1996.
