Victims of Hurricane Ida in parts of New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania will be eligible for tax relief, per the IRS.
Eligible filers under the September 15 deadline now have until January 3 to file, the agency said.
Qualified applicants must live in an area designated for individual or public assistance by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The tax relief is similar to what's available for Louisiana residents; it does not include 2020 payments or returns due May 17.
"During this difficult time, the IRS stands ready to help victims of Hurricane Ida," IRS Commissioner Chuck Rettig said in a statement. "We want people affected by this devastating hurricane focused on their safety and recovery for themselves and their families."
In New York, the tax relief applies to taxpayers in parts of the Bronx, Kings, New York, Queens, Richmond and Westchester counties.
In New Jersey, the relief applies to taxpayers in parts of Bergen, Gloucester, Hunderton, Middlesex, Passaic and Somerset counties.
Many taxpayers in those area will automatically receive filing and penalty relief, as long as they have an address in a disaster area. Look for the complete details on the IRS disaster assistance and emergency relief plan here.
