Can I claim my $1,000 deductible for car damage from Hurricane Irma?

You can claim your car damage deductible as a casualty and theft loss.

As part of hurricane tax relief, you can deduct your loss (minus $500) along with your usual Standard Deduction. This means you’ll be able to claim everything you lost over $500 without having to itemize deductions on your taxes. 

Make sure to indicate in the My Info section that you were affected by a hurricane (see attached screenshot).

To enter your loss in TurboTax, please follow these steps:
  • Click on Search on the top right of your screen
  • In the search box, type casualty loss then click on the magnifying glass icon on the right
  • In the search result page, click on Jump to Casualty loss
  • TurboTax will take you through a questionnaire where you can enter the details of your loss
