In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, the president signed disaster declarations for taxpayers impacted by Hurricane Sandy yesterday.  Today it was announced that the IRS is giving relief to those who file payroll and excise tax returns and make payments normally due on Wednesday.  The deadline for payroll and excise tax returns was extended one week and is now November 7th.

The IRS says additional filing and payment relief will be granted as the Federal Management Agency (FEMA) makes further disaster declarations.

Per the IRS, no action is required by impacted taxpayers, as the relief is automatic.  For more information on disaster relief, check out the IRS newsroom announcement.
