UPDATE: May 11, 2020
This is an update to our previous statement on the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
California Lock Down:
In accordance with the most recent update of the Shelter in Place order issued by the Santa Clara County Health Department, we are closed to the public.
Office Operations during Lock Down:
As of April 1st, we have switched back to our normal office hours:
Monday-Friday: 8:30am to 5:00pm
As of April 7, 2020 – All staff are now working from home. We will be checking our voicemail system frequently during normal business hours. We are still receiving mail and packages, but are no longer in the office physically for office hours.
Staff email addresses:
Jason Marino: firstname.lastname@example.org
Robert Duitz: email@example.com (or firstname.lastname@example.org for financial planning questions)
Front Desk: email@example.com
Craig Stavang: firstname.lastname@example.org
Harjit Singh: email@example.com
Tax Review Staff: firstname.lastname@example.org
All staff have access to their email so they will be able to answer questions you may have regarding appointments, tax return status, and other general inquiries.
Accounting falls under “essential services”, and we are continuing to serve clients as best as we can while keeping our staff safe by having them work from home. Due to these measures, our ability to process material for tax returns continues, but at a slower pace than our normal operations due to challenges during the current lock down.
We continue to meet with clients via phone and video conference ONLY.
We will keep everyone updated when we feel it is safe to go back to our previous arrangement working with limited staff in our office physically.
New Filing Deadline:
The deadline for filing your tax return is now July 15, 2020. Payments for amounts owed is also delayed until July 15, 2020. The State of California had previously extended the filing deadline and is now implementing the same July 15th deadline issued by the IRS.
For further information on the pandemic on a local level, we have a post on our blog listing sources that have been providing the most up-to-date information and metrics for our local area. We have found these sources to be helpful and reliable. You can find that post by clicking here.
Our primary concern remains keeping you, our staff and our community as safe as possible during the pandemic. We encourage you all to continue to abide by guidelines set by the Santa Clara County Health Department, the State of California Health Department, the WHO and the CDC.
Practice social distancing (six feet or more between people), self-isolation or quarantine, wash your hands frequently, and work from home as much as possible.
We are humbled and grateful for the outpouring of understanding and support from everyone, and we will continue to do our level best to process your tax returns and answer questions in the meantime. Please take care of yourselves and your families!
