Recently, the IRS posted a new publication regarding disaster relief, Publication 976 Disaster Relief. This new taxpayer publication details special tax provisions including tax benefits and retirement plan relief that is available to taxpayers due to 2016 and 2017 qualified disasters. Taxation of qualified disaster distributions, repayment of qualified disaster distributions, and loans from qualified retirement plans are all covered in this publication. New documents, the 8915A Qualified 2016 Disaster Retirement Plan Distributions and Repayments and the 8915B Qualified 2017 Disaster Retirement Plan Distributions and Repayments, were created to support the disaster relief provided by recent law changes set forth in the publication.
