Casualties, Disasters and Ponzi’s; Oh My!

A dive into the world of casualties, thefts and Ponzi schemes, including up-to-the-minute rules for claiming various losses and details on presidentially declared disaster areas. Case studies will provide detailed instructions on completion of the Form 4864 for various situations. We will also discuss how the inclusion of a casualty impacts the rest of the return and interacts with AGI-sensitive items and NOLs.
