IRS offers relief after irma:

miami-dade county taxpayers eiligble

You may qualify for IRS relief as a result of Hurricane Irma. Because of the disaster declaration for the State, most residents and business owners are eligible, including those in Miami-Dade County.
 
Relief includes:
  • Those with tax filing deadlines on or after September 4, 2017 and before January 31, 2018 can take additional time to file through January 31, 2018.
  • The additional time will also be allowed for taxpayers who received an extension to file their 2016 return by Oct. 16, 2017.
  • It also includes the quarterly estimated income tax payments originally due on Sept. 15, 2017 and Jan. 16, 2018, and the quarterly payroll and excise tax returns normally due on Oct. 31, 2017.
  • Tax-exempt organizations that operate on a calendar-year basis and had an automatic extension due to run out on Nov. 15, 2017 are also included.
  • Penalties on payroll and excise tax deposits due on or after Sept. 4, 2017, and before Sept. 19, 2017, will be abated as long as the deposits are made by Sept. 19, 2017. 
If you are in a disaster area (such as Miami-Dade County), the IRS says it automatically applies filing and payment relief so you don’t need to do anything. (If you live or have a business outside of a covered disaster area, you “must call the IRS disaster hotline at 866-562-5227 to request this tax relief.”)
 
If you receive a late filing or late penalty notice, the IRS advises you call the number listed on your notice to abate the penalty.
 
You may also be eligible for casualty losses, personal property losses not covered by insurance, waiving of fees and expedited requests for copies of previously filed tax returns for affected taxpayers, and possibly for a collection or examination issue.
