More Puerto Rican earthquake disaster victims now qualify for tax relief. The IRS has announced that victims living in designated federal disaster areas as a result of the Dec. 28, 2019, Puerto Rico earthquakes have additional time to make tax payments and file returns. For affected Puerto Rico municipalities, the extended filing date is April 30, 2020. In other news, the U.S. House passed a disaster relief bill that would affect several tax provisions for Puerto Rico residents, including the child tax credit, earned income tax credit, low-income housing credit, the new markets tax credit and the employee retention credit. However, the White House has announced its intent to veto the bill.
