The COVID-19 crisis is taking a toll on families, businesses, government leaders and our healthcare system. No doubt, your routine has been disrupted in some way – ours has, too. But we’re continuing to serve our clients while keeping our employees safe.
You’ve probably heard that the Department of the Treasury announced that the IRS is moving the income tax filing deadline from April 15 to July 15 to allow all taxpayers and businesses additional time to file and make payments without interest or penalties. That’s a good thing.
However, we’d still encourage you to call our office sooner rather than later to make a phone appointment. If you are eligible for a refund, filing now could help you receive that sooner. Also, if you get us your tax information now, we’ll have more time to process it and follow up with you if we need additional information.
Please note that move by the Treasury Department and the Internal Revenue Service does NOT affect state income taxes. Some states, including Ohio, are considering their own tax filing delays.
While our staff is maintaining regular business hours, we are not accepting in-person appointments at this time. But you can get us your tax information by dropping it off at the front desk in our Salem or East Liverpool offices, emailing it to us or dropping it in the mail. We plan to resume scheduling in-person appointments on April 6 – unless the COVID-19 situation dictates that we can’t.
Also keep in mind that our firm has experience assisting business clients with Small Business Association loans, if needed.
Thank you for business and allowing us to continue serving you during these uncertain times. We wish you and your family good health.
