§60.1. Deductions from gross income; casualty losses by individuals
Any resident of the area declared to be a disaster area by the President of the United States because of Hurricane Camille, which occurred on August 19, 1969, may deduct from his Louisiana net income for the year 1970 the amount of casualty loss, not otherwise covered by and satisfied by insurance payments, caused by Hurricane Camille and determined under R.S. 47:60 which exceeded the individual taxpayer's net income for 1969. If the amount of such loss as determined under R.S. 47:60 exceeded net income of the individual for 1969 and 1970 combined, the excess of such loss may be deducted in computing taxable net income for 1971.
The provisions of this section shall only apply to said casualty losses as prescribed above sustained by individual taxpayers, and shall in no case be applicable to such losses sustained by taxpayers of other classes.
The collector of revenue is authorized to prescribe rules, regulations and forms, if same are necessary, in order to facilitate the deductions herein authorized.
