Washington (Sept. 13, 2004) -- The Internal Revenue Service has granted special tax relief for Florida taxpayers in the Presidential Disaster Area that was struck by Hurricane Frances beginning Sept. 3.

It also lengthened the extension period that it had earlier granted for the disaster area counties struck by the storms Bonnie and Charley, most of which are also in the latest disaster area. Taxpayers in either disaster area generally will have until Dec. 30 to file tax returns and submit tax payments. The IRS will abate interest and any late filing or late payment penalties that would apply.
