Natural disasters may destroy personal and business records needed to prove and recover disaster-related losses. This can apply for tax purposes, for federal assistance program or for insurance claims.

Below are some sources to help people reconstruct needed records.

TAX RECORDS
Get free tax return transcripts immediately from the IRS by using Get Transcript on IRS.gov.
Or order transcripts by calling 800-908-9946 and following the prompts.

FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
Past statements may be available on paper or online from credit card companies or banks.

PROPERTY RECORDS
Homeowners can contact the title company, escrow company or bank that handled the purchase of the home or other property for info.
For inherited property, check court records for probate values.
When no other records are available, people should check the county assessor’s office for old records that might address the value of the property.
Car owners can research the current fair-market value for most vehicles. Resources are available online and at most libraries. These include Kelley’s Blue Book, the National Automobile Dealers Association and Edmunds.
