The IRS on Monday announced extensions of tax deadlines in parts of Tennessee and Illinois affected by deadly tornadoes, after the agency provided the same relief for taxpayers in parts of Kentucky last week.

Individuals in the designated parts of Tennessee and Illinois will have until May 16 to file their 2021 tax returns that otherwise would have been due April 18, the IRS said. The IRS also moved other deadlines to May 16 for the affected taxpayers, including quarterly estimated tax payments and business tax returns.

The extensions apply to individuals and businesses in 13 counties in Illinois and nine counties in Tennessee impacted by storms, tornados and flooding earlier this month.

The IRS has already announced the same tax extensions for parts of Kentucky affected by the disaster, and the agency said it will extend the same relief to other areas that receive emergency declarations by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
