9 Alabama counties qualify for tax relief due to storms
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The Internal Revenue Service says nine Alabama counties now qualify for tax relief due to the storms, tornadoes and floods that occurred last week.
Originally, Baldwin, Jefferson, Lee and Limestone counties were covered. But Blount, DeKalb, Etowah, Mobile and Tuscaloosa were added when the president declared them disaster areas.
The IRS says some tax deadlines between April 28 and Oct. 15 have been postponed to Oct. 15. This includes the May 15 deadline for tax-exempt organizations to file their annual Form 990. It also includes the June 16 and Sept. 15 deadlines for making quarterly estimated tax payments.
A variety of business tax deadlines are affected, including the April 30 and July 31 deadlines for quarterly payroll and excise tax returns.
