The Internal Revenue Service issued two items of guidance Wednesday in response to the need for charitable and other relief due to the Ebola outbreak in West Africa.

The first piece of guidance in Notice 2014-68 provides guidance on the treatment of leave-based donation programs to aid victims of the Ebola virus outbreak occurring in the West African countries of Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone for income and employment tax purposes. The guidance offers special relief to support leave-based donation programs to help victims who have suffered from the Ebola outbreak in those countries.
