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.
