The IRS announced certain taxpayers – both individuals and businesses – that were impacted by Hurricane Irene will receive tax relief.
The tax relief postpones certain tax filing and payment deadlines. Relief is currently available in the following areas:
You may also be eligible for relief if your tax preparer is located in one of the affected counties or municipalities. Other locations may be added as the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) completes damage assessments.
Full details, including the start date for the relief and information on how to claim a disaster loss by amending a prior-year tax return, can be found on the IRS website.
If your residence or business is located outside of the counties listed above but was affected by the storm, you may contact the IRS to request relief. Visit the IRS website and click on the link for your state to find more information.
The tax relief is part of a coordinated federal response to the damage caused by the hurricane and is based on local damage assessments by FEMA. For information on disaster recovery and other forms of assistance, visit www.disasterassistance.gov.
