The Arizona Department of Revenue will grant administrative relief to taxpayers potentially affected by the Wallow, Horseshoe II, and Monument fires.

State law authorizes an extension of any due date and suspension of any penalty or interest that would accrue during a state of emergency.

A state of emergency has been declared for Apache and Greenlee counties due to the Wallow fire, and for Cochise County due to the Horseshoe II and Monument fires.

The revenue department will automatically grant a 60-day extension for all affected taxpayers having to file a return or make a payment in June. For those having to file or make a payment in July, a 30-day extension will be granted. Penalties and interest will be waived if the filing or payment is made during the extension period. This relief covers income taxes, transaction privilege (sales) and use taxes, luxury taxes, withholding taxes, and estimated payments. Depending on the progress of the fire, this extension may be lengthened and additional tax returns and/or payments may be added to the list.

Individuals who are directly involved in fighting the fires, providing relief to victims, or assisting through a recognized organization are eligible for the tax relief.

For more information, call (602) 255-3381 or visit www.ador.gov.
