COVID-19 and Our Firm
As of January 20, 2021, our firm is still open for business. However, will not be holding face-to-face appointments with our clients due to the national pandemic. If you wish to have a designated time for your tax preparer to work on your tax return, please contact our front office staff to schedule this time. Otherwise, we will complete your tax return as soon as we are available to do so. In all cases, you may drop off, mail in, fax or email your tax information, whatever you are most comfortable with. Before you drop off, please write a good telephone number to reach you at and any questions you may have for your preparer and include that in your tax information. We also ask that in the case of drop-off returns that the CDC's recommendation of keeping 6 ft between other clients and our front office staff is always respected. We have placed tables in our lobby in effort to aid in social distancing. Also, we ask you to limit the time spent in our lobby to five minutes or less. If you feel as though you have a question that will take longer than this to answer, please feel free to email you preparer.
For this tax year, no filing deadlines have been extended. However, the IRS has postponed the opening of filing to February 12, 2021. Therefore, we will not be able to transmit any tax returns until this time.
We are still trying to find our new normal as you are, and we thank you for your continued patronage and patience during this difficult time. We pray that everyone stays safe and healthy.

If this doesn't get you any farther than you were.. we apologize. We desperately wish we were more help on this matter. However, if you didn't receive the payment and are eligible to receive it you should be able to claim it as a tax credit on your 2020 tax return.
I got a IRS notice.. now what?
First thing is first, bring in a copy (or email it) to your tax preparer so they are able to see it. Each IRS notice is different in how it is handled so they need to know the problem before they are able to direct you to the next step.
