Findlay, Ohio -- Ohioans affected by the November 10 tornado outbreak may be eligible for various forms of tax relief that could lessen some losses, federal and state recovery officials said today. "The U.S. Internal Revenue Service permits those with casualty losses to amend last year's return and claim this year's losses," said Federal Coordinating Officer Ron Sherman of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). "The advantage of this is it can result in a quicker refund than is available if the losses are filed on this year's return."
