Talkin' Tax - National Preparedness Month

In the latest installment of Talkin' Tax, Cary and Angie Bryson discuss Hurricane Ida's impact on the state of Louisiana, as well as the impact this will have on taxes.

When a natural disaster befalls upon us, the last thing we're thinking about is how the IRS will respond to the situation. In many instance, families are recovering from the loss of their home, personal property, or even loved ones in the most tragic of circumstances. Rarely is someone thinking about taxes when these tragedies strike, but it's important to understand that disaster options do exist with the IRS.

Listen as Cary and Angie highlight a list of strategies you can use to relieve some of your tax burden when natural disasters hit. Additionally, they share helpful information on tax deadlines and how they've shifted in response to the recent hurricane.
