Disaster Relief Resource Center for Tax Professionals


Welcome to the IRS Disaster Relief Resource Center for Tax Professionals.

Disasters can mean that many payroll and practitioner businesses and their clients suffer significant losses. Our goal is to provide resources and help to the affected payroll and practitioner community.

This resource center addresses common questions from tax professionals.

For news releases and other announcements on recent disasters, see Tax Relief in Disaster Situations. Disaster relief applies to tax preparers who are unable to file returns or make payments on behalf of the client because of the disaster. Taxpayers outside of the disaster area may qualify for relief if:

  • their preparer is in the disaster area, and
  • the preparer is unable to file or pay on their behalf.
