During an interview with WBRZ, Louisiana’s insurance chief reminded Gulf Coast residents about tax rebates available to citizens in the wake of Gustav and Ike.
Homeowners who suffered property damage from Hurricanes Gustav and Ike are eligible for two tax rebates and a tax deduction. Louisiana Insurance Commissioner Jim Donelon said property owners will receive a rebate if they were charged for a Louisiana Citizens assessment on their 2008 policies. Additionally, residents can claim damages in excess of $100 as a 2008 federal hurricane tax deduction.
