Disaster Relief, LLC helps homeowners who have suffered losses that are not insured - or not fully covered by insurance - as a result of federally declared disasters.
Taxpayers can claim a loss on their personal taxes for personal casualty losses resulting from federally declared disasters.
According to the IRS, loss is determined to be the difference between the Fair Market Value of a home immediately before the casualty and the Fair Market Value immediately after. This is determined by a competent Disaster Loss Valuation.
At Disaster Relief, LLC, we provide the estimate of the Fair Market Value of your home before the disaster, and the amount of loss you received as a result of the disaster.
That’s all you need.
With this information, you or your tax preparer can file a claim as a deduction to be taken against last year’s tax liability or the current year’s tax liability.
This could help you find the money you need for home repairs - now!
(We are sorry, but we cannot value mobile homes or manufactured homes.)
What We’ve Achieved
We responded to Hurricane Harvey in Houston, TX in 2017 by valuing all homes damaged by the hurricane. Thousands of victims were able to apply for tax refunds, based upon our loss estimates, that allowed them to begin the rebuilding process quickly and return to their homes faster than they might have otherwise.
“Sometimes serendipity happens.”
“It did when we made the acquaintance of Mark Verrett (Chief Appraiser at Disaster Relief,LLC) and learned of the extent of the loss that Hurricane Harvey had dealt us in the valuation of our home. Mark explained that the IRS provides for such events. With his able assistance we got the necessary documentation the IRS required. Mark’s helpful and responsive efforts were keys to a successful outcome. We would not hesitate to recommend his services to others.”

And this from a Victim of Hurricane Florence:
Thank you so very much! I really can't express in words how grateful I am for you and your concern for us in the wake of Hurricane Florence and its destructive flood waters that have destroyed our house of 35 years. At 78 years old, this has been very difficult.
May the Good Lord's blessings be on you, Mark, and with you in your very important work of encouragement in this way. Thank you again.
