Are you financially prepared for the next storm?
Open a Mississippi TAX FREE First Catastrophe Savings and you can be!
A Catastrophe Savings Account (CSA) is a tax-advantaged regular savings account or money market account. It must be established by a Mississippi Income taxpayer to assist with post catastrophe losses or to self-insure all or a portion of one’s home.
1 Consult your tax advisor for tax benefit.
2 The funds in a CSA may be used to pay an insurance deductible under an insurance policy that covers the taxpayer's legal residence in Mississippi, if that policy covers hurricane, flood, windstorm or other "Catastrophic Event" damage. It can also be used to pay for "Catastrophic Event" damage to the taxpayer's legal residence in Mississippi that is not covered by the policy of insurance that covers the taxpayer's legal residence for such damage after the deductible under such policy has been paid and to pay self-insured losses for the tax-payer's legal residence from a hurricane, flood, windstorm, or other "Catastrophic Event".
3 If your qualified insurance deductible is less than or equal to $1000, then the total amount that may be contributed to a CSA can't be more than $2000.00. If your qualified insurance deductible is greater than $1000.00, then the total amount that may be contributed will be $15,000.00 or twice the amount of your deductible, whichever is less. If you are self-insured for all or any part of your insurance policy, and can't, or choose not to obtain insurance on your legal residence, then the total amount that may be contributed to a CSA will be the lesser or $350,000.00 or the value of your legal residence.
