March 20, 2020 - Tax Filing Deadline Extended

The Tax Filing Deadline has been extended amid COVID-19 Outbreak.

 

For both Federal and CA residents, Taxpayers (individuals and businesses) now have an additional 90 days, until July 15, 2020, to file their 2019 tax returns.

 

However, the Treasury is encouraging taxpayers who may have tax refunds to file now in order to get their tax refund money and those who owe to STILL FILE even if they delay their payment until July 15, 2020.

For those reasons, at this time we are going to remain open.  You can schedule an appointment, do a drop off or email your tax information to you.  We even off curb-side drop off.  (Just give us a call and we will come out to your car and pick up your forms from you.

March 18, 2020

As many of you are aware, there is a lot of information out there in regards to the corona virus and how it will affect the deadlines to file tax returns for 2019.

At this time the IRS has extended the deadline to pay any tax balance to July 15, 2020.  They have not yet extended the deadline to file.  So at this time, your 2019 Federal tax returns are still due on April 15, 2020.

 

The CA Franchise Tax Board has extended the deadline to pay and the deadline to file for those quarantined until June 15, 2020.  (For other state requirements and deadlines, please visit that states Department of Revenue website.)

We will therefore remain open at this time to facilitate the filing of your tax forms by the April 15, 2020 deadline. 

In order to protect our clients, we are implementing some changes for the rest of this tax season...

1) In addition to our normal cleaning routines, we will be cleaning and wiping down surfaces more often. 

2) We have removed all the children's toys from our reception areas as they are more difficult to keep clean.

3) All sign-ins will be handled directly by staff.

4) We we will be opening the third office suite in our building as an additional waiting area in order to provide the recommended 6 ft distancing.

In addition to these changes we continue to accept drop offs and/or you can send your tax information to us via email or fax.
