No place in the world is disaster proof. Mother Nature unleashes her horrors globally and year round via hurricanes, tornadoes, wild fires, floods, blizzards and more.
These special Natural Disasters Resource Pages are the comprehensive collection of Don't Mess With Taxes blog posts about disasters and the associated tax implications.
As long-time blog readers know, I am a weather nut. I made that clear early in my blogging career. My second ever post back on Nov. 15, 2005, the one after unleashing introducing Don't Mess With Taxes, was Stormy tax policy about, yes, hurricanes.
My fascination with weather woes comes naturally. The hubby and I, along with close members of my family have been through major hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes and floods and way too close to wildfire.
So obviously, I'll still publish separate storm-related blog posts when warranted. But rather than reinvent the wheel in those items, I'll refer readers to this page.
I hope that isn't necessary often. But for too much of the time, Mother Nature can be a real Mommy Dearest!
Finally, a quick note on the following info. When I created this collection five years ago, I didn't realize that I had essentially become a weather/disaster blogger in addition to one who chronicles taxes. So originally, it was one special page.
But as storms continued to wreak havoc and require posts about associated tax relief, it got to be really, really, loooooong! More than 3,000 words long (and growing).
So I've broken it into separate pages of posts with information on storms and disasters:
- General storm stories and information and
- More disaster resources.
In each section, the relevant posts are added in rolling chronological order, meaning the oldest ones are at the top and the newest blog post on a topic in that area is at the end of the bullet list. Many of the older posts still offer good info, but I'd suggest you scroll through all, especially if you're looking for the most up-to-date news, tax or otherwise.
Feel free to click over to the disaster area of particular interest to you now by hitting the page links above. Or peruse each section at your leisure.
Most importantly, though, stay safe!
