After ripping through Florida, Hurricane Ian turned left and slammed into the Carolinas. While the destruction in North and South Carolina wasn't as devastating as it was in Florida, there was plenty of damage done in those two states. As a result, federal disaster declarations were issued for both states. That also means tax relief is available to Hurricane Ian victims in the Carolinas in the form of extended tax filing and payment deadlines, a deduction for related losses, and fee waivers. (Relief was announced for Florida victims earlier.)
