Tax relief for individuals affected by terrorist attacks in Israel: IRA and HSA deadlines postponed

Due to the terrorist attacks in the state of Israel beginning on October 7, 2023, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has issued Notice 2023-71 and News Release IR-2023-188 announcing tax relief for affected taxpayers.

The tax relief postpones until October 7, 2024, certain deadlines falling on or after October 7, 2023, through October 7, 2024. 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. The IRS’s Disaster Assistance and Emergency Relief for Individuals and Businesses page has details on returns, payments, and tax-related actions qualifying for the additional time.

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, with a temporary extension until November 6, to employment and excise tax deposits.
