The automatic relief is for people and businesses in FEMA-designated disaster areas.

Taxpayers in Puerto Rico, Saint John and Saint Thomas get the same extensions.

Anyone who lives in one of the affected areas, or owns a business there, automatically qualifies and won’t need to contact the IRS to request the extension.
