Weathering disasters together.
Just as with past disasters — through all the hurricanes, floods, tornadoes, and winter (yes, winter) storms — LCPA is committed to keeping you updated on additional resources and disaster assistance as it becomes available. We work closely with federal and state agencies to ensure the concerns of CPAs and taxpayers are well represented, especially in times of disaster.
Response Ready: A Message from Our CEO
We, like all Louisiana residents, are aware of the devastating impacts of Hurricane Ida and know too well that we have a long road to recovery ahead. While the safety of your family and staff is paramount, we also understand the potential impact on the filing deadlines. Our Advocacy Team is already hard at work on emergency declaration filing issues and will keep you updated if guidance is issued.
We thank LCPA Member Jerry Schreiber for sharing his Disaster Guide and other valuable resources with us. We've also listed a few other resources that may come in handy. Bookmark this page for easy access as we'll add any special disaster-related alerts to this page.
The impact of Ida, or any storm, is uncertain. What is certain, is our dedication to providing the necessary support and advocating for your causes.

The AICPA Disaster Recovery Guide is a great resource to add to your website and share with members, even before a weather situation hits. This comprehensive guide, created in partnership with the American Red Cross, is an easy-to-read tool for members and the public, with several good checklists to follow, both before and after an unfortunate event.
