The IRS release—VA-2018-02—announces tax relief for eligible taxpayers affected by Hurricane Florence in:

  • The Virginia counties of Henry, King and Queen, Lancaster, Nelson, Patrick, Pittsylvania, and Russell 
  • The independent cities of Newport News, Richmond, and Williamsburg

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.
