(CNN) – The IRS announced on Tuesday that it's giving extensions to certain quarterly taxpayers impacted by Hurricane Irma. The automatic relief is for individuals and businesses in FEMA-designated disaster areas.

In Florida, deadlines are extended to Jan. 31, 2018, for filings and payments that had been due starting Sept. 4. 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.

There is one important note: If you still owe money on your 2016 taxes, there's no extension because those payments were due by April 18 of this year.
