Recently, Representative Byron Donalds (R-FL) released a statement concerning tax relief for Floridians that were impacted by Category Five Hurricane Ian.

“While we continue recovery efforts for the victims of Hurricane Ian and make progress rebuilding the affected communities, there is still much work to do. At the top of my priority list is to make sure the citizens of Southwest Florida receive the same tax relief from the IRS that the victims of past hurricanes did,” stated Rep. Donalds.

He went on to mention that Floridians – especially his constituents in Southwest Florida – we’re not the beneficiaries of former-Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) holding the gavel at the time.

“Unfortunately, while then-Speaker Pelosi and Congressional Democrats focused on passing trillions of liberal wish list proposals that heightened inflation, crucial legislative items like the wavier for Hurricane Ian's qualified federal disaster languished at the expense of thousands in Southwest Florida,” said Rep. Donalds.

However, Donalds believes that he will be able to right the ship so that those in the Sunshine State can receive the same benefits as those who have been affected by hurricanes as devastating as Ian in the past.

“Under Republican leadership, my office is working steadfastly to correct this predicament and retroactively extend disaster tax relief for victims of the devastating Category 5 Hurricane that ravished our community in September,” said Donalds.

Earlier this year, Donalds reintroduced the Financial Freedom Act which aims to ensure that American investors have the liberty to invest in the methods in which they see fit.
