Supply chain issues likely to delay Hurricane Ian recovery: Bindiya Vakil
Resilinc Founder & CEO Bindiya Vakil joined ‘Kennedy’ to weigh in on supply chain issues and power outages in Florida as a result of Hurricane Ian.
The Internal Revenue Service announced Thursday that victims of Hurricane Ian in Florida qualify for tax relief.
Those impacted by Ian have until Feb. 15, 2023 to file various federal individual and business tax returns and make payments.
The agency said it is offering relief to any area that is designated by the FEMA, and that the current list of eligible localities is available on its IRS.gov disaster relief page.
Individuals and households that reside or have a business anywhere in the state of Florida qualify for tax relief.

The tax relief postpones various tax filing and payment deadlines that occurred starting on Sept. 23 and, as a result, affected parties will have until that February date to file returns and pay any taxes that were due during this period.
Those who had a valid extension to file their 2021 return due to run out on Oct. 17 of this year will now have until Feb. 15, 2023.
However, because tax payments related to these 2021 returns were due on April 18, those payments are not eligible for the relief.
The February deadline also applies to quarterly estimated income tax payments due on Jan. 17 and the quarterly payroll and excise tax returns normally due on Oct. 31.
