The IRS is granting taxpayers and tax preparers affected by Hurricane Sandy until November 7 to file returns and accompanying payments.

The relief applies to taxpayers and preparers in an area affected by Hurricane Sandy or otherwise impacted by the storm. It primarily applies to businesses whose payroll and excise tax returns and payments were due on October 31. No action is required by the taxpayer; the relief is automatic. Regular federal tax deposits are due according to current rules.
