    Due to the destruction caused by wildfires starting on November 8, 2018 in several areas of California, the President has declared parts of California a federal disaster area. As a result, individuals that reside in or have a business located in an affected area may qualify for tax relief.

    The tax relief postpones until April 30, 2019 certain deadlines falling on or after November 8, 2018 and before April 30, 2019. Deadlines that apply to individual retirement accounts (IRAs), Health Saving Accounts (HSAs), Coverdell Education Savings Accounts (CESAs), and other tax advantaged accounts that fall within this time period are extended.

    For an opportunity to learn more about IRAs and other tax advantaged accounts, including Health Savings Accounts and Coverdell Education Savings Accounts, consider joining us for one of our IRA, HSA, or CESA Live Streaming events offered on a variety of topics.
