Helpful links for information regarding  losses and late filing for state and federal declared disaster events…

Taxpayers may deduct a disaster loss for any loss sustained in California that is proclaimed by the Governor to be in a state of emergency. For a complete list of all disasters, see the “Qualified Disasters” chart on FTB’s Disaster Loss webpage. This disaster page also has information on extended deadlines, filing instructions, and obtaining free copies of state returns.

In addition, California automatically follows federal postponement periods for any Presidentially declared disasters, such as Hurricanes, Tornadoes, Earthquake, Fire, Flood, Landslide, Severe Storms, etc. For instance, if an ice storm impacted a taxpayer who earns income in California, that taxpayer has extra time to file a California tax return.  A variety of returns, payments, and tax-related actions qualify for additional time. For more information on disasters and related losses visit the IRS disaster relief page; for planning information, assisting clients and reconstructing tax returns/information visit this page on
