Tax Resources for Disaster Victims

The tax law may help you recover financially from a disaster, especially if you are located in a presidentially declared major disaster area. Depending on the circumstances, the IRS may give you additional time to file your return and pay taxes. Also, individuals and businesses in a presidentially declared disaster area can get a faster refund by claiming losses related to the disaster on the previous year's tax return, usually by filing an amended return.
