Hurricane Michael victims receive a tax filing extension

Surviving a hurricane can be a life-changing, traumatic experience. The entire world, as you know it, may seem to have shattered around you. You may have lost your home or your job. Your health may be compromised. Your social network may have crumbled.

In trying circumstances such as these, the last thing you should have to worry yourself about is fulfilling your federal tax obligations on time. Following FEMA’s disaster declarations last month, the IRS announced that it will extend deadlines for taxpayers who live in, or have a business in, any of the 69 hurricane-impacted counties in Georgia—as well as several other counties in Alabama and Florida.

Tax deadlines are extended to February 28, 2019 for qualifying regions. These extensions apply to all original or extended due dates occurring after October 8, 2018. For income tax returns, this extension applies to filing the following returns:

  • Individual
  • Estate and trust
  • Corporate—including Form 990-T, Exempt Organization Business Income Tax Return

It also applies to filing the following types of tax returns:

  • Employment
  • S-corporation
  • Partnership
  • Estate, gift and generation-skipping
  • Trust
  • Form 990-series annual information returns

In addition, the deadline extension applies to:

  • Paying taxes and
  • Other time-sensitive tax acts.

In the wake of a natural disaster, the IRS shows lenience to victims. To better understand the full range of services and accommodations afforded to hurricane victims, it’s worth consulting with an experienced tax attorney. They can take the burden of preparing your tax return for you, as you attend to more pressing matters.
