I began my business career by starting a retail ski shop. I built it to $1 million in sales as the ski industry boomed. When my daughter was born I sold the ski business and became a stay-at-home mom entrepreneur, selling custom portraits of children and pets through mail order and specialty shops (that's yesterday's equivalent of an internet business). I sold the portrait business after five years and entered the University of Pittsburgh M.B.A. program, majoring in Accounting and Finance. I graduated Magna cum Laude and I worked as Assistant Controller and Systems Analyst for a large industrial foundry and rolling mill in Eastern Ohio. Two very cold winters later I moved to Southern California to be Project Financial Analyst and Internal Auditor at Hughes Aircraft. I moved to Disney to manage the financial affairs for several divisions at the park as well as the construction of Thunder Mountain Railroad. I left Disney to work as a Special Projects Consultant for Shell Oil, then spent 11-1/2 years at Digital Equipment Corporation. At DEC I worked directly with the Western Vice President of Sales, managing the budgeting, reporting, and awards programs for a 300 person sales force. I also served as executive partner to several aerospace and banking companies, wrote the strategic plan for a new $50 million venture, served as national training manager for the Finance and Accounting organization, and as training liaison between Finance and Accounting and the sales group. In 1992 I took early retirement and became a SCORE volunteer. Currently, I work part-time doing marketing, accounting, and financial planning for a small family owned firm. I also consult periodically with the Cal State Fullerton School of Business Entrepreneurship program and run three small businesses: consulting for several former employers, art beading and freelance writing

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.
