Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.

Florida will be declared federal disaster area and as such your time to file your next year return will be extended. What happened to your accountant? Was his business destroyed? Were the your files destroyed?

You will not get another extension but if you file couple of weeks late you can request abatement of penalties for reasonable cause.
