Extended Due Dates for Hurricane Irma Victims

Hurricane Irma blazed a path of destruction through the Caribbean, the Florida Keys, and up through Florida. As a result, the IRS is postponing various tax filing and payment deadlines that occurred starting on September 4, 2017 in Florida and September 5, 2017 in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. Persons with valid filing extensions in place will have their due dates extended until January 31, 2018. Extended deadlines include due dates for income tax returns for individuals and entities due on September 15 and October 16, and the September 15 and January 16 quarterly estimated income tax payments.

These extended deadlines apply to areas designated by FEMA as qualifying for individual assistance. The IRS indicates the following areas are so designated (check for updates here):

In U.S. Virgin Islands: The islands of St. John and St. Thomas.

In Puerto Rico: The municipalities of Culebra, Vieques, Canóvanas and Loíza.

In Florida: The counties of Brevard, Broward, Charlotte, Citrus, Clay, Collier, DeSoto, Duval, Flagler, Glades, Hardee, Hendry, Hernando, Highlands, Hillsborough, Indian River, Lake, Lee, Manatee, Marion, Martin,  Miami-Dade, Monroe, Okeechobee, Orange, Osceola, Palm Beach, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk, Putnam, Sarasota, Seminole, St. Johns, St. Lucie, Sumter and Volusia.
