Dear friends and clients
As the world tries to adjust with an issue of enormous impact, our hearts, prayers and thoughts go out to all of those who are being affected by the outbreak.
While we are closely monitoring this situation, we are prioritizing two things – the health and well-being of our staff and clients, as well as continuing to provide the high level of service all of you have come to expect.
We would like to assure you that we are taking precautionary measures for everyone’s safety. We have made the decision to keep our office open to assist our client’s in any way possible. However, we have stopped taking appointments and request that any pertinent information be emailed, mailed or dropped off in the box we have outside of the front door. We constantly have an eye on the box and regularly retrieve your documents.
The updated tax information, as we know it today, is that the IRS is still processing refunds. Therefore, please get us your tax information and/or signed e-file authorization forms so that we can assist you in getting your refunds as quickly as possible.
For taxpayers that will owe money to the IRS, they are granting an interest and penalty free extension of time to pay your taxes until July 15, 2020. This does not give you an automatic extension of time to file. You are still required to file your tax return or an extension request by April 15, 2020.
For all of our NJ/NY taxpayers, there has not yet been any word on an extension for your tax payments or change of filing deadline.
To our business clients, please email or call us with any questions you may have so that we can assist you and your employees in weathering this current situation.
Lastly, we want to let you know that we appreciate each and everyone of you and look forward to moving past this tragic time. Please stay safe.
Addeo, Polacco & Penta and staff
