Hurricane Ian Victims in Florida Qualify for Tax Relief


Hurricane Ian is likely to rank as one of the most destructive storms in U.S. history. The federal government has announced tax relief for all of Florida’s residents and businesses. If you’ve been affected by Hurricane Ian, visit the IRS’s dedicated webpage for details, updates, and resources:

The IRS has provided return filing and payment extensions to taxpayers who are located in FEMA-designated areas of Florida affected by Hurricane Ian. The relief postpones various deadlines that occurred starting Sept. 23, 2022, until Feb. 15, 2023. This means individuals who have a valid extension to file their 2021 tax returns due to run out on Oct. 17, 2022, now have until Feb. 15, 2023, to file. The IRS noted, however, that because tax payments related to these 2021 returns were due on April 18, 2022, those payments aren’t eligible for this relief. For more information:
