  • In response to the impact of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, certain counties in Texas and Florida have been declared as major disaster areas. [For a complete list of declared counties and information on hurricane related federal tax relief see IRS Provides Tax Filing and Payment Relief to Hurricane Victims.] As a result, numerous states have enacted delayed filing and payment periods for individuals and businesses located in these major disaster areas. In order to help track these developments, the Jones Walker team has compiled and summarized the provided relief of participating states. Our team will continue to monitor for further federal and state tax related disaster relief announcements and update this post accordingly.
