' Tax Relief Is Available To Storm Victims James Daly, whose District covers the state of Indiana, today reminded taxpayers effected by losses from tornadoes of special provisions of the law regarding- casualty losses. Provisions covering tax relief are effective as soon as certain localities on request of the Governor are designated as "Disaster Areas" by the President of the United States. Certain areas in this state may be so designated within a few days. Daly said taxpayers in disaster areas may elect to deduct casualty losses incurred between January 1 and April 15, 1985 on their 1964 tax returns. Where effected taxpayers have already filed their tax returns Daly said amended returns can be filed on or before July 15, 1965. Where returns have not been filed the law gives' the District Director full authority to grant reasonable "xtensions of tirrie on an individual basis for filing returns and j -laying the tax. Requests for extensions should be submitted as-promptly, as possible. Daly stressed that under the law deductions for. non-business casualty losses are limited to 1 mounts over $100.00. Taxpayers who have suffered losses are •lrged to obtain from local In- 'ernal Revenue Service offices f he honklet "Casualties How 'he Federal Income Tax Applies to S-'orms, Floods, Hurricanes, Other.
