IDR Releases New Tax Guidance: Disaster Emergency Tax Penalty Relief

Wednesday - 05/29/2024

Governor Kim Reynolds authorized a Proclamation of Disaster Emergency in response to severe weather that occurred. The Iowa Department of Revenue has released new tax guidance on how people affected by the disaster can seek tax penalty relief:

  • Disaster Emergency Tax Penalty Relief
    Due to recent storms, Governor Reynolds has declared several counties in Iowa to be disaster areas. For taxpayers who may have missed deadlines to file or pay Iowa taxes because records were destroyed by those storms, tax penalty relief is available. This guidance describes how you can request penalty relief by submitting a penalty waiver request on GovConnectIowa or by submitting a Penalty Waiver Request form.

This information was sent via GovDelivery to those subscribed to receive updates from the Department. To receive notifications of resources and guidance issued by the Department, subscribe to updates by selecting the tax topics of interest.
