    Due to the destruction caused by the severe winter storm, straight-line winds, and flooding that occurred on March 9, 2019 in the state of Nebraska, the President has declared that parts of Nebraska are a major disaster. As a result, taxpayers that reside in or have a business located in an affected area may qualify for tax relief.

    The tax relief postpones until July 31, 2019 certain deadlines falling on or after March 9, 2019 and before July 31, 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. This includes the ability to make IRA, HSA, and CESA regular contributions for 2018.

    Please note that unless an act is specifically listed in Revenue Procedure 2018-58, the postponement of time to file and pay does not apply to information returns in the W-2, 1094, 1095, 1097, 1098, or 1099 series; to Forms 1042-S, 3921, 3922 or 8027; or to employment and excise tax deposits. For this reason, the deadline for custodians and trustees to file IRS Forms 1099-R (IRAs), 1099-SA (HSAs), and 1099-Q (CESAs) that report distributions is not extended.
