The IRS announced on September 1, 2011 that it will be providing tax relief to victims of the recent Hurricane Irene disaster. The tax relief provides tax-filing and payment deadline extensions to those who were affected by the hurricane. Included in the tax relief are corporations and businesses with a September 15 deadline for 2010 returns and those with estimated tax payment due dates. The extension will be granted until October 31, 2011.
North Carolina, New Jersey, New York and Puerto Rico taxpayers can all expect the IRS relief and other states are sure to follow as additional information is collected on the current status of the affected areas.
