Hurricane Irma Tax Relief Update

Bradenton/Sarasota/Tampa, FL

Updated 10/02/2017 - HR 3823 provides targeted tax relief for taxpayers impacted by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria. Contact us to explore whether this applies to your personal or business circumstances.

Updated 9/19/2017 -The IRS is now offering expanded relief to any area designated by FEMA as qualifying for either individual assistance or public assistance in the State of Florida and the State of Georgia. For information on government-wide efforts related to Hurricane Irma, visit www.USA.gov/hurricane-irma. 

9/14/2017 - The Internal Revenue Service has announced that Hurricane Irma victims in parts of Florida and other areas have until January 31, 2018, to file some individual and business tax returns and make certain tax payments. The tax relief granted Tuesday by the IRS includes an additional filing extension for taxpayers with deadlines between September 4, 2017 and before January 31, 2018. This includes:

  • Taxpayers and businesses who had a valid extension to file their 2016 returns that were due to run out on Sept. 15, 2017 or Oct. 16, 2017.
  • Quarterly estimated income tax payments originally due on Sept. 15, 2017 and Jan. 16, 2018, as well as the quarterly payroll and excise tax returns normally due on Oct. 31, 2017.
  • Tax-exempt organizations that operate on a calendar-year basis and had an automatic extension due to run out on Nov. 15, 2017.
  • Penalties on payroll and excise tax deposits due on or after Sept. 4, 2017, and before Sept. 19, 2017, will be abated as long as the deposits are made by Sept. 19, 2017.

The relief is granted to individuals who live and businesses whose principal place of business are located in the disaster area, as well as relief workers affiliated with a recognized government or philanthropic organization assisting in the relief activities. Additionally, tax returns prepared by CS&L CPAs will be entitled to this relief as our offices (and therefore the records necessary to meet a deadline) are located in the covered area.

Bradenton/Sarasota/Tampa, FL

The CPA profession is doing better than it ever has to advance women, but women still comprise only 23% of partners and principals. That’s a challenge for succession planning, growth and workload management.
