Victims of recent severe storms, tornadoes, and flooding in Missouri may qualify for tax relief from the Internal Revenue Service.

Following severe storms, tornadoes, and flooding on May 8, 2009, the President declared Adair, Barry, Barton, Bollinger, Cape Girardeau, Christian, Dade, Dallas, Dent, Douglas, Greene, Howell, Iron, Jasper, Jefferson, Laclede, Lawrence, Madison, Newton, Ozark, Polk, Reynolds, Ripley, St. Francois, Shannon, Texas, Washington and Webster counties a federal disaster area qualifying for individual assistance.

As a result, the IRS is postponing until July 7, 2009, certain deadlines for taxpayers who reside or have a business in the disaster area.
