Each year, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) gives tax relief to people living in counties (or parishes) declared a national disaster by the President. Special tax laws may help you recover financially from the impact of a disaster. Do you live in an area that was recently declared a national disaster?
The most common kind of tax relief is an extension, so that you can wait longer before filing. Every situation is different. Talk to a professional at a community or free tax preparation site to find out what you should do.
