The IRS today added two new counties—Orange and Solano—to a list of California counties where tax relief is being provided with respect to taxpayers affected by the California wildfires beginning on October 8, 2017.
The updated IRS release—CA-2017-06 (originally issued October 13, 2017, and updated October 16, 2017)—notes that the president has declared that a major disaster exists in the State of California. Following the recent disaster declaration issued by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the IRS announced that affected taxpayers in California will be eligible for certain tax relief.
Individuals who reside or have a business in nine counties—Butte, Lake, Mendocino, Napa, Nevada, Orange, Solano, Sonoma, and Yuba counties—may qualify for tax relief. Orange and Solano counties were added to the list today. Read more about tax relief available for victims of the California wildfires in TaxNewsFlash-United States
