The Service has put up a very useful and comprehensive webpage titled "Help for Victims of Hurricane Harvey." The page contains excellent information about all the different actions the Service takes in response to a natural disaster and has links to all kinds of useful sites.
The Texas State Comptroller has a similarly useful webpage that describes the state and local tax relief (such as exemption from hotel taxes).
Finally, Frank Agostino and Phillip Colasanto have also posted a good article here that not only explains the substantive and procedural tax consequences of a disaster like Harvey, but gives good general advice on what taxpayers and their advisors should do as a practical matter to prepare for the tax aftermath.
