If you live in Eastern Massachusetts, you have extra time to file and pay your taxes this year. Because of the recent severe storms and flooding in the region, both the U.S. Internal Revenue Service and the Mass. Department of Revenue have extended the April 15 deadline to May 11.

The extension applies to people who reside in and businesses located in the counties of Bristol, Essex, Middlesex, Norfolk, Plymouth, Suffolk and Worcester.
