Tax professionals frequently deal with clients who have recently experienced a federally declared disaster. The IRS and the Taxpayer Advocate Service (TAS) are sensitive to these special situations and your clients may be entitled to special tax provisions due to the disaster.
For additional information on the various provisions and to see if you qualify for them, visit Disaster Assistance and Emergency Relief for Individuals and Businesses.
TAS supports disaster relief by providing tax return information and other services as needed. If your client suffers an economic burden due to a disaster, they may qualify for additional TAS assistance.
