TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Today, Florida Department of Revenue Executive Director Jim Zingale announced extended due dates for corporate income tax filers impacted by Hurricane Ian following the recent declaration from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Eligible taxpayers that file Florida corporate income tax returns, as well as Florida corporate income tax installment payments, with original due dates or extended due dates falling on or after September 23, 2022 and before March 2, 2023 will now have a due date of March 2, 2023. This tax relief is applicable to affected businesses anywhere in Florida.
Additional information is available on the Tax Relief for Victims of Hurricane Ian webpage on IRS.gov. Taxpayers outside Florida who require assistance with corporate tax filing may contact the Department's taxpayer services at (850) 488-6800 or GTAHurricaneHelp@floridarevenue.com.
"Hurricane Ian was an historically catastrophic storm, and the total impact is yet to be determined. The Department of Revenue is ready to assist business owners in the affected areas as they deal with the damages and begin to recover," said Director Zingale.
The Department has implemented the corporate income tax extension pursuant to subsection 213.055(2), F.S., which authorizes the Executive Director of the Department of Revenue to carry out certain actions during a declared state of emergency. Governor Ron DeSantis declared a state of emergency in response to the threat of Hurricane Ian (see Executive Orders 2022-218 and 2022-219). Following Governor DeSantis’ request, President Joe Biden issued a Major Disaster Declaration for Hurricane Ian.
