Filing Changes Due To Coronavirus
The most recent information we have received indicates that the 2020 filing season may be "extended" and that federal and Connecticut state income tax payments can be delayed without interest or penalties. We do not have specifics on this or on how different states will react to the federal postponement. Rather than speculate at this time, we will wait for authoritative information to share with you.
In the meantime, our intention is to stay open but with reduced office hours from our usual extended tax season times to more normal business hours. Our office hours will be 8 A.M. to 5 P.M. Monday through Friday, subject to change. In order to protect our client's personal and confidential information, we are not allowing our staff to work from home.
In compliance with government "social distancing" recommendations, we have suspended all in-person meetings with clients and will instead communicate by telephone or email. You can drop off your tax information, but we ask that if you have any symptoms of coronavirus, have come in contact with anyone who has, or have recently traveled from areas where coronavirus has been found, to please not come to our office. Alternatively anyone can mail or email their information to us. We have also activated a client portal where you can upload your tax documents. Anyone interested in using the portal should contact our office.
When your tax returns are completed we will mail your tax return package to you. Please review the returns and follow the instructions for signing the e-file authorization and returning it to us or, as the case may be, mailing the returns. Please contact our office if you have any questions or concerns about your tax returns. It is best to contact us by email which we will be able to retrieve if we are not in our office.
We greatly appreciate your cooperation and patience. We will send additional notices as new information is available and will post updates on our website.
