A Tax Guide for 2010 Flood Victims

 

Important Deadline: April 15, 2011. Taxpayers can claim a casualty loss from the May 2010 Tennessee floods on their either their 2009 or 2010 income tax returns. But, the choice must be made by April 15, 2011. After that date, taxpayers can only claim the loss on their 2010 returns. See your tax preparer for more information.

 

Important! This tax help is for EVERYONE who lives in one of the 46 Tennessee disaster counties. Some of the special rules apply to you even if you didn't have flood damage. A list of the disaster counties is at the bottom of this page. This page will change often as we add more information. Check back often!
