Entire State of Georgia Eligible for Filing Due Relief Due to Hurricane Irma

In News Release 2017-156 the IRS extended the same type of due date relief to those impacted by Hurricane Irma in Georgia that it did to those affected in Florida, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The only significant difference is the starting date of the relief--this one covers due dates and payments that occurred beginning on September 7, 2017.  That will include the extended business returns that were due on September 15, 2017 and the extended individual returns due on October 16, 2017.  Similarly, the estimated tax deposits due on September 15, 2017 and January 15, 2018 are also covered.  All of these items will now have a due date of January 31, 2018.

The IRS also extended the same 15 day payroll tax deposit extension for payments coming due after September 7 through the end of the 15 day period.
