The IRS has released Notice 2013-30, formalizing a three-month extension for filing and paying taxes for those affected by the Boston Marathon bombings.

The extension was originally announced on April 17 (see “IRS Gives Boston Taxpayers 3-Month Extension”), and applies to all individual taxpayers who live in Suffolk County, Mass., including the city of Boston, as well as victims, their families, first responders, others impacted by the tragedy who live outside Suffolk County, and taxpayers whose tax preparers were adversely affected.

The IRS will automatically provide the relief to all taxpayers who live in Suffolk County; those outside Suffolk County can call (866) 562-5227 to obtain the relief.

Eligible taxpayers who receive notices requesting the payment of additions to tax for late filing or payment from the IRS can call this number to have these additions to tax abated.
