Are there any deductions for hurricane Irma evacuation expenses ?

Unfortunately, there are no deductions for evacuation expenses.

There is a casualty and theft deduction if you have suffered losses from the hurricane. But ancillary costs are not deductible.

Non-deductible ancillary costs would include items such as:

  • temporary lodging,
  • generators,
  • improvements to prevent future casualties
  • clean up costs except to measure the decline in value.
