Updated September 15, 2017 -The IRS is now offering expanded relief to any area designated by FEMA as qualifying for either individual assistance or public assistance in the State of Florida. This represents all 67 counties of Florida.
We would like to extend our thoughts and prayers out to everyone affected by Hurricane Irma. We hope, first, that you and your family are safe from harm and, secondly, that you did not suffer significant damage to any of your property.
Regarding the upcoming tax deadlines, the IRS has granted automatic relief to all taxpayers affected by Hurricane Irma. As of right now, business and individual taxpayers located in the following counties are automatically given extensions to January 31, 2018 to file:
Broward, Charlotte, Clay, Collier, Duval, Flagler, Hillsborough, Lee, Manatee, Miami-Dade, Monroe, Palm Beach, Pinellas, Putnam, Sarasota and St. Johns Counties.
This list will likely expand. If you are not located in one of the above counties, do not worry. You will likely still be considered an affected taxpayer as your records are kept at our office which is located in a federally declared disaster area. We will do our best to make sure the IRS provides you the same relief.
If you would like more information on relief, please see the IRS website here.
Again, we extend our thoughts and prayers to you and your family. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help. As Floridians, we have gone through this before and we will recover. Hurricane Irma will not knock us out!
