When the governor of Texas or the president of the United States declares a location in Texas to be a disaster area, taxpayers in the affected area are eligible for certain tax exemptions and filing extensions for their taxes.

A disaster can be natural or man-made, causing significant physical damage or destruction, loss of life or a drastic change to the environment.

Texas has had its share of declared disaster areas caused by hurricanes, tornadoes, fires and floods over the years, and our office wants to help you take care of yourself, your home or your business when disaster strikes.
