Is your State Eligible for Disaster Tax Relief in 2017?

Did your county, state, or territory recently get hit with a natural disaster? Good news, the IRS doesn't expect you to scramble to make the filing deadline anyway.

What if your tax records are destroyed?

What if you owe taxes and your funds have gone to temporarily relocate your family?

Thankfully, the IRS provides disaster tax relief for victims of federally declared disasters by the President of the United States. If you reside in a state that has been struck by a hurricane, flood, wildfire, earthquake, or other disaster, you may qualify for special tax relief.

IRS tax relief for disaster victims generally takes the form of extended deadlines to file your return. The IRS also frequently extends tax payment deadlines for disaster victims.

How Do I Prepare My Tax Records for a Disaster?

The IRS recommends that in order to prepare for a possible disaster, you should make an electronic backup of all tax-related documents. It is best to store this electronic set of records in a different location than the originals.
