IRS Tax Relief in Disaster Situations – IRS offers some tax relief and extensions for fire recovery/federally designated disaster areas.

An affected taxpayer includes:

  • An individual
  • Any business entity or sole proprietor
  • Any shareholder in an S Corporation

A taxpayer does not have to be located in a federally declared disaster area to be an “affected taxpayer.” Taxpayers are considered “affected” if records necessary to meet a filing or payment deadline postponed during the relief period are located in a covered disaster
