Due to the damage caused by Hurricane Irene in New York beginning on August 26, 2011, President Barack Obama declared the following counties a federal disaster area: Albany, Delaware, Dutchess, Essex, Greene, Nassau, Rensselaer, Schenectady, Schoharie, Ulster and Westchester. Individuals who reside or have a business in these counties may qualify for tax relief.

Declaration Leads to Extension of Payroll Tax and Other Deadlines

Therefore, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) announced recently that it will waive failure to deposit penalties for employment and excise taxes due after August 25, 2011 and before September 13, 2011 as long as the deposits are made by September 12, 2011. In addition, affected taxpayers have until October 31, 2011 to file most tax returns.
