WASHINGTON -- The IRS is giving taxpayers and tax preparers hit by Hurricane Sandy an extra week to file returns and make payments.

The tax agency says the relief will apply mainly to businesses in the storm-impacted Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states whose payroll and excise tax returns and payments are normally due on Wednesday. The deadline will be extended until Nov. 7. No action is required by the taxpayer to obtain the extension.

The IRS says additional filing and payment relief will be granted as the Federal Emergency Management Agency makes further disaster declarations. Details can be found on the Tax Relief in Disaster Situations page of IRS.gov.
