Special tax law provisions may help taxpayers and businesses recover financially from the impact of a disaster, especially when the federal government declares their location to be a major disaster area. Depending on the circumstances, the IRS may grant additional time to file returns and pay taxes. Both individuals and businesses in a federally declared disaster area can get a faster refund by claiming losses related to the disaster on the tax return for the previous year, usually by filing an amended return.
 
The IRS also offers audio presentations on Planning for Disaster. These presentations discuss business continuity planning, insurance coverage, recording keeping and other tips to stay in business after a major disaster. 
 
Visit their Disaster Assistance and Emergency Relief for Individuals and Businesses section of the IRS site for more.

 

The IRS maintains a valuable collection of resources for small businesses called the Small Business and Self-Employed Tax Center.  Visit their site for forms, articles, videos, webinars and audio presentations for small businesses.
