Details

Our lobby remains open and available to clients. We encourage you to send documents to us by fax, NetClient portal, NetClient mobile app, or postal service, but if you need to visit our office please keep a distance of six feet between you and our staff.

We continue to monitor the situation and will make adjustments to our business procedures as warranted. Effective March 23 our staff accountants have begun working from home. This is to ensure services can continue to be provided in the event of an infection in our office. All staff are available by telephone by calling the office phone number or by email.

Due to these adjustments we are asking clients to:

  1. Use NetClient portals, fax or postal service whenever possible to deliver documents to us.
  2. If you need to visit our office, please maintain six feet between you and our staff.
  3. Please respond to requests for documents as quickly as possible. With staff working from home we may not be able to meet a deadline if information isn't provided timely.
  4. With fewer staff in the office please leave voicemails if you call and do not connect with someone.

Out of an abundance of caution we are modifying our office procedures due to the effects of the COVID-19 virus.

  1. Before we open at 9:00 am areas of our lobby will be wiped down and sanitized to the best of our ability. Pens, candy, books, and magazines have been removed from the lobby. Should you need a pen to sign your documents we will gladly provide you with one that you may keep.
  2. We will no longer schedule face-to-face meetings. We will gladly answer your questions over the phone or by email.
  3. All deliverables such as tax returns and other documents will be posted to your portal or mailed to you based upon your preference. Signed documents may be uploaded to your portal, faxed or mailed to our office. We do not recommend unsecured email for delivering confidential and personally identifying information.

We will work to prepare tax returns as quickly as possible; however, we do expect additional government guidance to further impact our business. As the virus spreads we may be forced to take more drastic measures which may slow the preparation of returns and other deliverables. We will keep you updated.

We realize these new procedures may be an inconvenience, but we believe they are necessary to protect our staff and clients. We look forward to returning to normal procedures as soon as possible.

Firm News
April 15 Tax Deadline Postponed

The IRS has confirmed that the April 15 tax deadline will be postponed until May 17. With tax changes signed into law March 11, expanded Payroll Protection Program eligibility, stimulus questions, and other issues our workload has been greatly increased. This one month delay in the filing deadline will be greatly appreciated! We will work to deliver as many returns as possible by April 15, but we will need some time to react to other pressing client needs.
