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.

When Jeff Lichtenstein, president of Gourmet Guru, a specialty foods distributor, first met with SCORE NYC counselor Elliot Merberg in December '07, his company was approaching its tenth year, was marginally profitable and seriously undercapitalized. Based on an initial analysis, Jeff, Elliot and Jeff's wife, Kim, the company's CEO, determined that the company lacked the working capital and management infrastructure essential to increasing its revenue. Together, they developed a detailed plan designed to increase working capital, upgrade their computer system and expand and modernize their warehousing facilities.

Over the last two years, implementing these changes has led to an increase in and restructuring of Gourmet Guru's management team, the implementation of upgraded information technology and their relocation to a new, state of the art "green" distribution center. Bottom line: the company's revenue for fiscal 2010 will exceed $23 million versus $8 million in 2007. Today, Jeff and Kim continue to tweak their operation, focusing on increasing revenues, higher net margins and greater productivity. Elliot Merberg continues his close association with the company as a member of its Board of Advisors.
