IRS Offers Relief to Taxpayers
Affected by Chicago Flood
WASHINGTON - Taxpayers unable to meet the April 15th deadline
because of the flooding in downtown Chicago have until April 22,
1992 to file their returns and pay any tax due.
The Internal Revenue Service today said that returns and
applications for automatic extensions from affected taxpayers will
be considered timely if filed by the April 22 date. This relief
provided today is available to taxpayers directly affected by the
flooding as well as those whose returns are completed by preparers
affected by the flooding.
To obtain the relief, taxpayers should write "Chicago Flood" on
the top of the return. The IRS indicated that additional time may be
granted if conditions in the downtown Chicago area are not improved
by April 22.
