New York (Aug. 19, 2002) -- A just-released New York Department of Taxation and Finance publication addresses tax and estate relief for victims of the September 11 terror attacks.

Publication 59 includes details on how to prepare amended or original returns, the documents that must accompany the returns, and where to file returns to claim the personal income tax relief.

A new Form IT-59, Tax Forgiveness for Victims of the September 11, 2001, Terrorist Attacks, is included to compute the amount of tax forgiven. To claim the tax relief, filers must include this form with the original or amended return.
