Course Description

This course will examine the federal tax implications related to casualties, disasters and thefts. By the end of this course, you should be able to identify the characteristics of a disaster, distinguish between deductible and nondeductible casualty losses, describe the process by which a taxpayer proves a casualty loss to the IRS, describe the tax treatment of insurance (and other) reimbursements, and describe how the 2% Rule, the 10% Rule, and the $100 Rule are applied to casualty losses. Your instructor will use practical, hypothetical real-world examples to further examine these topics and test your knowledge of the most recent tax laws as they apply to casualties, disasters and thefts.

Watch, listen and learn as your expert instructor guides you through each lesson step-by-step. During this media-rich learning experience, you will see and hear each lesson just as if your instructor were there with you. Reinforce your learning with the text of our course transcript.
