Federal Disaster Areas: Extensions of Time to File and Relief from Penalties and Interest Are Still Available

Tax return extensions of time to file and abatement of certain penalties and interest are provided for all taxpayers in federally declared disaster areas whether they are victims of the disaster or not. The return deadline extensions cover individual, business, estate, gift, and payroll tax returns. Late-filing and late-payment penalties are abated for all except payroll tax deposits, which have a shorter abatement period.
