WASHINGTON, D.C. — The IRS has granted an additional weeklong extension to the federal tax-filing deadline to taxpayers affected by the recent storm.IRS Commissioner Mark Everson granted the additional week federal extension after Sen. Charles Schumer requested it at a Senate Finance Committee hearing Wednesday morning.Earlier this week, the IRS granted a two-day extension for storm ravaged regions in New York and across the Northeast.Ongoing power outages and public transportation problems have made it difficult in some cases, if not impossible, for some taxpayers and tax professionals to meet the April 17 filing deadline, according to a news release from Schumer's office.Affected taxpayers can mark their paper tax returns with the words "April 16 Storm." Taxpayers who e-file their returns can use their software's "disaster" feature, if available.
