Victims of Hurricane Delta now have until February 16, 2021, to file various individual and business tax returns and make tax payments due on or after October 6, 2020.

The tax relief is available to anyone in any area designated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) as qualifying for individual assistance. Currently this includes Acadia, Calcasieu, Cameron, Jefferson Davis, and Vermilion parishes in Louisiana. However, taxpayers in places added later to the disaster area will automatically receive the same filing and payment relief.
