The Internal Revenue Service is now offering a tax deadline extension for victims of Hurricane Ida to Jan. 3, 2022. Tuesday's announcement comes as the Category 4 hurricane has already taken four lives and left millions of others without power. The storm touched down on Aug. 26 and has since swept through the Gulf Coast causing devastation in its path. 

The IRS extension applies to all residents of Louisiana and any other area FEMA declares as eligible for the relief. The extension allows individuals and businesses to file tax returns and make tax payments for various deadlines that began on Aug. 26, when the hurricane made landfall. 

The Sept. 15 and Oct. 15 deadline are now pushed to Jan. 3, 2022 for qualifying individuals impacted by Ida. 

"During this difficult time, the IRS stands ready to help victims of Hurricane Ida," IRS Commissioner Chuck Rettig said in a news release. "We want people affected by this devastating hurricane focused on their safety and recovery for themselves and their families. To provide assistance now and in the weeks ahead, we have a variety of different types of relief available to help people and businesses affected by this disaster."
