IR-2022-164, September 27, 2022
WASHINGTON — Victims of storms and flooding that began on September 15 in parts of Alaska now have until February 15, 2023, to file various federal individual and business tax returns and make tax payments, the Internal Revenue Service announced today.
The IRS is offering relief to any area designated for individual or public assistance by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). This means that individuals and households that reside or have a business in the Regional Education Attendance Areas of Bering Strait, Kashunamiut, Lower Kuskokwim and Lower Yukon, in Alaska qualify for tax relief. Other areas added later will also qualify for this relief. The current list of eligible localities is always available on the disaster relief page on IRS.gov.
