Does my home damage from Hurricane Irma fall under the Personal Property casualty? Insurance paid, but there were out of pocket expenses.

Yes, your out of pocket expenses for damage from Hurricane Irma fall under the personal property casualty.

You will deduct your out of pocket expenses for hurricane damage on Form 4684, Casualty and Theft Loss which carries to Line 20 of your Schedule A, Itemized Deductions.

In TurboTax, jump to the entry area for Casualty Loss:

  1. Login TurboTax and select the blue "Take me to my return" button.
  2. Click "Search" in the upper right corner and search for "Casualty Loss" and then click the "Jump to Casualty Loss" link in the search results.
  3. On the Casualties and Thefts (or Stolen or Damaged Items) screen, select Yes.
  4. Answer the interview questions describing your event.
  5. When you complete the event and reach the Property Summary screen, you can enter any additional property losses by selecting the Add a Property button.
