Cloud storage is not just the perfect file-sharing tool, but consider backup in the event of disaster.
We’ve recently seen evacuations underway in parts of San Jose, California, due to severe flooding and the Oroville Dam spillway crisis. This threatened cities and towns in Northern California, and it’s clear that the future will likely have many natural disaster threats yet to come.
The United States government last year issued 103 federal disaster declarations across the country.
And for those that suffered a loss in such an area, or a casualty or theft loss in another situation, those losses may qualify for tax deductions, according to the American Institute of CPAs, or AICPA.
What about recuperation from important data loss, such as all the files they had backed up in hard drives and zip drives?
That said, consider the case of Ellen and Ralph when their old beach front home burnt to the ground from faulty electrical wiring. Ralph worked diligently following his retirement to renovate the home on stilts surrounded by acres and acres of rocks and wild sea oats hosting the surf. They’d planned to live their golden years there.
Think about your own situation and how may those files be retrieved when not just a flood or fire, but in any type disaster drowning or blowing away and flat out destroying those important devices you’ve been using for backup?
A casualty loss may be taken as an itemized deduction on Schedule A of Form 1040 for the year when the damage occurred (if a taxpayer doesn’t itemize, then they can’t even get the deduction).
“It’s not a grand giveaway,” said, a CPA and partner at large accounting firm in Louisiana, where flooding often occurs. But even with the best tax deductions for such a loss, still, how may you ever replace that important computer data?
Cloud storage is the perfect file-sharing tool, especially for multimedia and documents files that are too large to send by email.
