IRS reprieve: Places granted tax relief due to natural disasters

Tax Day is Monday but the Internal Revenue Service does have a bit of grace for those Americans dealing with the worst of nature.

Some taxpayers have been granted automatic extensions to file and pay their 2023 tax returns due to emergency declarations from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

The extensions were triggered by disasters ranging from wildfires to tornadoes.

The extensions apply to people who live in or own businesses in declared disaster areas.

The IRS also considers taxpayers affected if records necessary to meet a filing or payment deadline or a tax preparer are located in a covered disaster area.

Individuals and businesses affected by Hamas' attacks in Israel now have until Oct. 7 to file their taxes.

These extensions are separate from the extensions taxpayers can request by the Monday deadline.

Here are the places granted tax extensions due to declared disasters.
