***Hurricane Sandy Victims*** Being a resident of Staten Island, NY, I have seen the devastation that Sandy has caused and know that the insurance companies and the government have been taking their time to release the funds that the family desperately need. If you have been affected by Hurricane Sandy please bring a list of your losses & reimbursements so they may be properly applied on Form 4684 Casualty Loss. Taxpayers can claim certain legitimate property losses if their insurance companies did not reimburse them or if they did not have insurance.
