After taxpayers suffer a casualty or disaster, taxes are probably the last thing on their minds. Tax laws can offer some help for loss victims and victims of a presidentially declared disaster could use their tax filing to obtain much-needed cash. This course helps a tax professional to identify casualty and disaster losses and determine the assistance available to disaster victims. Additionally, insurance reimbursements and disaster payments, reconstruction of records and calculation and reporting of losses are covered. 

Upon completion of this course, the tax professional will be able to:

  • Identify casualty and disaster losses.
  • Determine how to handle insurance reimbursements and disaster payments.
  • Explain how to reconstruct a taxpayer’s records.
  • Calculate and report the loss on Form 4684, Casualties and Thefts.
  • Calculate the basis of replacement property.
