Electronic Filing for Hurricane Irene Victims

Date: October 14, 2011

In September, Gov. Bev Perdue and the NC Department of Revenue extended tax relief for certain filing and paying obligations to taxpayers affected by Hurricane Irene. To make the process easier for those disaster victims, NCDOR will keep the e-File program for electronic submission open to accept returns through the end of the month.

E-file would have closed on October 17, following the deadline for filing an extension for most taxpayers this year.  For any taxpayer who lives or has a business in the areas granted tax relief because of Hurricane Irene, e-File will be open through 11 am on October 31.

“We are taking every step to help hurricane victims get their lives back to normal and get their businesses back to full speed,” Gov. Perdue said. “This extension will help them recover and follows my priority of making state government more efficient.”

Included are taxpayers in the following counties: Beaufort, Bertie, Bladen, Brunswick, Camden, Carteret, Chowan, Craven, Columbus, Currituck, Dare, Duplin, Edgecombe, Gates, Greene, Halifax, Hertford, Hyde, Johnston, Jones, Lenoir, Martin, Nash, New Hanover, Northampton, Onslow, Pamlico, Pasquotank, Pender, Perquimans, Pitt, Sampson, Tyrrell, Vance, Warren, Washington, Wayne and Wilson.
