Victims of Floods, Storms and Tornadoes In Six States
Now Have Until August 29 to File Certain Returns

WASHINGTON - The Internal Revenue Service is postponing until August 29 the time to file certain tax returns, to make certain tax payments and to perform time-sensitive acts for storm, flood, and tornado victims in presidential disaster areas in six states, mostly in the Midwest.

Previously, these deadlines varied by state, and the postponement provides people affected by the disasters with additional time.

"Our hearts go out to to the people hit by these disasters," IRS Commissioner Doug Shulman said. “We realize that as people put their lives back together, they need additional time to work on these tax issues."

This announcement will affect counties in Indiana, Iowa, Illinois, Nebraska, West Virginia and Wisconsin that qualify for individual assistance. Affected counties in Missouri previously have been granted relief until August 29.
