On Tax Day — File, Copy & Store

April 15th, 2010 · No Comments

I received an email this week from the City of New York about taxes. It wasn’t the Department of Finance reminding me to file but instead it was from the Office of Emergency Management with a reminder about making (and securing) copies:

“As the tax return filing deadline looms (this Thursday, April 15), OEM reminds New Yorkers to make extra copies of their returns. Following a disaster, insurance providers may request up to three years of tax returns to support a claim. Store copies of your tax returns in your Emergency Financial First Aid Kit while finances are still fresh on your mind.”

The Emergency Financial First Aid Kit was created to help the public identify important financial documents and serve as a quick reference guide for critical information. The American Red Cross also has a financial guide for disaster preparedness here.
