To deduct a casualty loss, you must itemize your deductions on Schedule A. The amount of your deduction is limited to the amount of the loss that exceeds 10% of your Adjusted Gross Income after a $100 deductible
As an example if you had a $5,000 property loss, and your Adjusted Gross Income is $60,000, your result would be as follows
After deducting $100, you are left with $4,900 which is below 10% of your Adjusted Gross Income of $6,000.
Your would therefore have no deduction.
