IRS Gives One-Week Filing Extension to Taxpayers Whose Preparers Were Affected by Hurricane Irene
IR-2011-88, Sept. 1, 2011
WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service today announced it is granting taxpayers whose preparers were affected by Hurricane Irene until Sept. 22 to file returns normally due Sept. 15. The taxpayer’s preparer must be located in an area that was under an evacuation order or a severe weather warning because of Hurricane Irene, even if the preparer is located outside of the federally declared disaster areas.
This relief, which primarily applies to corporations, partnerships and trusts that previously obtained a tax filing extension, is available to taxpayers regardless of their location.
This relief does not apply to any tax payment requirements.
