Taking the Right Steps Immediately Can Make a Huge Difference
ROSELAND, NJ – Now that fall is here, Nor’easters pose a real problem; and with snowstorms not far behind, residents and business owners face major challenges in recovering from their losses. The New Jersey Society of Certified Public Accountants (NJSCPA) has prepared a Disaster Recovery Guide in hopes of providing at least a measure of assistance for those in crisis.
The Disaster Recovery Guide is designed to assist disaster victims with many of the details involved in the recovery process, including documenting losses for tax and insurance purposes, and replacing personal identification papers. The guide includes Internal Revenue Service (IRS) forms and publications for use in filing casualty loss claims; instructions for replacing personal documents, such as birth certificates, drivers licenses and Social Security cards; and tips on documenting damage and losses for insurance claims.
