The IRS today added more counties and an independent city in Virginia as locations where taxpayers affected by Hurricane Florence may be eligible for tax relief. In general, the tax relief includes more time to file returns, pay taxes, and perform certain other time-sensitive acts for those Virginia taxpayers affected by Hurricane Florence.
The IRS release—VA-2018-02 (updated October 19, 2019)—was updated to reflect that tax relief is being made available for eligible taxpayers affected by Hurricane Florence in:
The counties added today are Charles City, Halifax, and King William counties. The independent city of Franklin was added to the list.
The relief generally allows additional time for hurricane-affected taxpayers who reside or have a business in the identified disaster areas. For instance, eligible taxpayers facing certain filing deadlines falling on or after September 8, 2018, and before January 31, 2019, are granted additional time to file (through January 31, 2019). This includes the time for remitting quarterly estimated income tax payments and filing quarterly payroll and excise tax returns.
Tax-exempt organizations that operate on a calendar-year basis and had an automatic extension due to run out on November 15, 2018, may also be eligible for the tax relief.
