Individuals who had a valid extension to file their 2022 return that ran out on Oct. 16, 2023, now have until June 17, 2024. However, it’s important to note that because tax payments related to these 2022 returns were due on April 18, 2023, those payments are not eligible for this relief.

The IRS automatically provides filing and penalty relief for Federal tax returns to any taxpayer with an IRS address of record located in the disaster area. Taxpayers do not need to contact the IRS to get this relief. However, if an affected taxpayer receives a late filing or late payment penalty notice from the IRS that has an original or extended filing, payment, or deposit due date falling within the postponement period, the taxpayer should call the number on the notice to have the penalty abated.

If you are not a victim, but you are looking to help those in need, this is a great opportunity to donate or volunteer your time to legitimate 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charities that are providing relief efforts for storm victims.
