Course Description

News-making disasters affect your clients’ tax returns.

Relief is available to taxpayers who’ve suffered these losses, but achieving that relief requires understanding and applying the applicable rules.

There are also significant developments with the IRS in the area of casualty losses and getting those losses properly reflected on Form 4684.

Taxpayers who have suffered losses in declared disaster areas may have opportunities to generate immediate cash savings as well as reduce current tax liabilities.

This requires fully understanding the definitions of and rules surrounding casualty losses and properly applying them. These rules are complex and documentation is difficult, especially when many clients have lost all their records.

This CPE course will cover deducting casualty losses inside and outside of federally declared disaster areas and will also review tax relief for taxpayers affected by the recent disasters.

Although the TCJA eliminated personal casualty losses for the years 2018 - 2025, business casualty losses remain deductible and personal losses within federally declared disaster areas remain deductible.

This CPE webinar will review the deductible portion of losses, insurance proceeds, settlements, and other relief received that affect the deductible of the losses. It will also include tips on filing Form 4684 and properly reflecting the losses on both personal and business returns.
