The IRS is Urging Taxpayers to be Prepared for a Natural Disaster

In the wake of the recent hurricanes, the IRS is urging taxpayers to be prepared for any natural disasters when it comes to their financial records.

• Create electronic copies of important documents – this could include tax returns, insurance policies, and bank statements. You can store them in a waterproof container.
• Document Valuables in your home – photograph or videotape your valuables for potential insurance claims.
• Review emergency plans on an annual basis.

If you do experience a federally declared disaster in your area, you can reach out to the IRS at 866-562-5227 to speak with an IRS specialist that is trained in this area to help you.

Please consult your tax advisor on all the above information.
