It’s been a wet, windy few weeks for the people of Washington State. Heavy rains followed by fierce winds have sparked flooding and landslides and toppled trees throughout much of the state, particularly in Southwest Washington. In response, Governor Jay Inslee has proclaimed a statewide state of emergency. More storms are predicted. Fortunately, tax relief is available for business and property owners adversely affected by the weather.
The Washington Department of Revenue has announced that filing extensions and penalty waivers are available for affected taxpayers. Businesses with property in any of the declared disaster areas may also be eligible for property tax relief. Audits may be rescheduled. Additional information.
Dealing with taxes can put anyone in a stormy mood. Keep calm and automate.
