Taxpayers who live in an area affected by one of the many disasters this year can visit IRS.gov. The website has details about tax relief that might benefit them. The Tax Relief in Disaster Situations page on IRS.gov has resources that can walk taxpayers through information related to these disasters:
 

Hurricane Irma affected Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico

Hurricane Maria hit the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico

Hurricane Harvey affected Texas and Louisiana

The IRS also issues local news on the Tax Relief in Disaster Situations page. This includes frequently asked questions and news releases. For instance, taxpayers affected by the wildfires in California can find information about tax relief available to them.

Taxpayers who live in a federally declared disaster area who want to file a 2016 tax return electronically should do so by Saturday, Nov. 18, 2017. These taxpayers will still be able to file paper tax returns after that date.

Remember that all of the web page addresses for the official IRS website, IRS.gov, begin with http://www.irs.gov. Don' t be confused or misled by Internet sites that end in .com, .net, .org or other designations instead of .gov. The address of the official IRS governmental Web site is http://www.irs.gov/.
