We have been monitoring the fast-changing recommendations of the CDC, Federal, New York State and local governments related to the coronavirus (COVID-19).
Our priority is the health and safety of our staff, our clients, our colleagues, our families, and our friends. To promote the health and safety of everyone, we are discontinuing in-person meetings, and some of our staff will be working from home.
Our office will continue to provide the quality service we have provided for over 20 years.
If you have not sent in your tax information, we request that you either scan and upload it to our secure portal or send it to us by FedEx, UPS or US Post Office, return receipt requested.
We will gladly schedule a telephone conference to discuss your tax information and/or tax returns. When your tax returns are completed, they will be sent to you through our secure portal or by mail.
US Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin announced that taxpayers can delay paying their income taxes on as much as $1 million in taxes owed for up to 90 days interest and penalty free. So far, the Treasury Department has not extended the April 15th filing deadline. www.irs.gov/coronavirus
During this unprecedented time, consider helping your community by:
- Checking on and /or doing an errand for your elderly neighbor.
- Donating nonperishable food to your local food pantry. It is advised that you call or e-mail first to arrange for a drop off of your donation
- Children are home from school so they need cereal, soup, peanut butter and don't forget the jelly!
- Donating blood. For more information, visit www.nybc.org/coronavirus.
- Fostering a cat of dog from your local animal shelter for a few weeks. Look at their website or call before visiting the shelter.
