The IRS has announced tax relief for taxpayers impacted by the Oct. 7 terrorist attacks against the State of Israel. The announcement comes only three days before the Oct. 16 tax deadline for those who requested a federal filing extension for last year’s taxes. Eligible taxpayers now have until Oct. 7, 2024, to file these returns. The IRS has also extended certain other tax filing and payment deadlines. 

On Saturday, Oct. 7, the State of Israel was attacked by Hamas. The attacks have resulted in more than 1,300 reported deaths, including at least 14 Americans. More than 100 people, including 17 Americans, remain missing as of Thursday.
