Disaster Relief Resources

Tax guidance for those impacted by recent hurricanes

Disaster relief resources for tax professionals

We've developed several resources to provide guidance and assist tax practitioners in responding to their clients' needs in the aftermath of several recent hurricanes. Two new Thomson Reuters Checkpoint special reports provide information on how to approach both immediate issues and longer-term return preparation and planning for this year and during the 2018 filing season as a result of hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria. Two new client summaries are also available for practitioners to send directly to their clients to provide federal tax break relief information and other assistance to clients affected by hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Additional resources are available below, including tax pronouncements, state tax announcements and support for impacted Thomson Reuters customers.
