As you are aware, in the past weeks, Governor Sisolak has implemented measures to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus). In doing our part to keep our clients, employees, and community safe, we have implemented the following:
As of March 18, 2020, the majority of our workforce will be working remotely through April 30, 2020.
We will have limited staff coverage in our office and limited hours. Please call or email us to schedule a time to drop off any documents or pick-up any completed paper returns you have requested. This will be subject to change if our building closes or we no longer have anyone working in the office.
While we will be working during this time, we expect a delay from our normal tax season schedule in getting all returns completed and filed due to the changeover in our work environment and additional challenges as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
The IRS has automatically extended the due date for filing 2019 income tax returns due on April 15, 2020, to July 15, 2020. In addition, any related income tax payments due April 15, 2020, regardless of amount, are postponed until July 15, 2020. An extension is not required to be filed under this automatic deferral. Returns not filed by July 15, 2020, will require an extension to be filed.
Payment of your first quarter 2020 estimated tax due April 15th has also been moved to July 15th. Your second-quarter estimate payment is still due June 15th.
Many states have also announced similar relief plans in place.
Be assured we are working diligently to complete and process your returns as quickly as we can.
We will continue to have the following options for tax return processing:
Electronic: You may send us your documents electronically using Sharefile (we can provide you with a link) and you may continue to sign electronically via Right Signature or by uploading your signed Form 8879 IRS e-file Signature Authorization. We ask that these not be emailed directly since they contain sensitive taxpayer information. Faxing is also an option.
Paper: You may mail in your documents to our office and you can also have the Form 8879 mailed to you for signature and returned to our office.
Thank you for your understanding and trust during this time. Our dedication to you and our community is steadfast. Stay home for Nevada. Be safe.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have further questions.
