In consideration of the continuing impact of Hurricane Katrina, the Internal Revenue Service has further postponed filing and payment requirements for businesses until Oct. 16, 2006, which is the same deadline established earlier for certain individual filers.The postponement now applies to individual, corporation, partnership, estate, trust, S corporation, generation-skipping, employment and certain excise tax returns with original or extended due dates that fall on or after Aug. 29, 2005, but before Oct. 16, 2006.

Business taxpayers in seven Louisiana parishes and three Mississippi counties will automatically qualify for this postponement. In addition, taxpayers in other locations - covering 11 Alabama counties, 31 Louisiana parishes and 48 Mississippi counties - can also obtain the filing and payment postponements by self-identifying themselves to the IRS.
