Covid-19 Updates and Policies

In light of the worldwide effort to help mitigate and reduce the spread of COVID-19, One River CPAs will make some changes to our daily operations in order to help our staff and clients remain healthy.  Our clients are our top priority and during this effort to reduce exposure to COVID-19, we have made the decision to change some of our daily operations.   For the upcoming weeks we have decided to make the following changes to our daily operations:

  • All in person client meetings will be suspended until further notice. We will continue to be available to clients via telephone and e-mail to discuss individual tax questions.
  • Effective immediately, we will deliver tax returns via e-mail or via U.S. Postal Service in an effort to reduce client visits to the office.
  • We ask that clients mail or e-mail their documents to the office whenever possible. We will continue to accept information that is dropped off by clients but we ask that whenever possible, everyone seek an alternative plan and limit visits to our office as much as possible. Currently, President Trump has instructed the IRS to extend the April tax filing deadline.  The Internal Revenue Service and the Department of Treasury, have officially announced that July 15th is the new filing deadline. However, we will continue to operate and work toward filing tax returns by April 15, 2020. This goal will allow our clients to have their tax returns completed in a timely fashion and allow our staff to maintain their current work schedules with little disruption in the months following the April deadline.

 

We appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding during this time.  It is important that we all make every effort possible to be socially responsible and reduce the opportunities for COVID-19 to spread.  Our staff and clients are our priority and we want to do our part to make sure everyone stays healthy.

 

Thank you,

One River CPAs
