The Internal Revenue Service has extended tax deadlines for taxpayers affected by Hurricane Ike, which spread devastation over the weekend in Galveston and other parts of Texas, Louisiana and other states.

Taxpayers and tax preparers will have an extra seven days to file their corporate tax returns and third-quarter estimated taxes that would have been due on Sept. 15. Taxpayers directly impacted by the storm will have until at least midnight, Sept. 22, to meet their tax-filing obligations without incurring late filing and payment penalties.
