As those affected by Hurricane Harvey begin the arduous process of recovery, there are things the CPA community can do to help clients, small businesses, and fellow CPAs living and working in affected areas get back on their feet.
- The AICPA Benevolent Fund provides assistance to AICPA members undergoing financial hardships. If you’d like to support other CPAs in need, you can make a charitable donation to the fund.
- The Disaster and Financial Planning: A Guide for Preparedness and Recovery from the AICPA, American Red Cross and National Endowment for Financial Education (NEFE) offers steps you can take to help your clients reduce financial impact.
- The IRS has already extended filing and payment deadlines for those in disaster areas. This article outlines what you and your clients need to know.
- Additionally, the Texas Society of CPAs (TSCPA) and Society of Louisiana Certified Public Accountants (LCPA) have compiled a list of resources and ways to help.
The NCACPA Hurricane Relief webpage has additional information, and will be updated as more resources become available.
