~~Miscellenous Updates from our office~~
**Update as of 4/8/2020 – IRS has announced a payment release schedule for the stimulus checks. Please visit the IRS’s website at https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus. Also it has been mentioned by Intuit the maker of the tax software we use that if you have a direct deposit or direct debit from your bank account, the IRS will have your bank information. This is for 2018 and 2019 tax returns. If you filed a 2018 tax return you do not need to file a 2019 to receive your stimulus payment. Social Security recipients that do not file a return will receive a check (either direct deposit or paper) and do not need to do anything. Again, for more information, your fastest sources will be the link we have provided. If you have specific questions, please contact us, however please allow 72 hours for a response due to limited staff and hours. Thank you – please continue to stay safe and we look forward to seeing you all soon.
**Update as of 3/31/2020 – See below for new links with information on the Stimulus checks you are hearing about. We ask that you be patient, with everything being worked out with the government we still do not have all the how and whys. As soon as we do you will have access to such information. If you have not yet filed a 2018 tax return, please note, our office will try to accommodate your filing need, however there are other returns which must be filed by the April 15th deadline that will take priority. Per IRS website, it states you have time to file, therefore we ask for your patience as the daily change in priorities caused by the government changes affect us. Clients that have already submitted their tax documents to our office, we ask for approximately a 2-week turnaround, again, we must prepare and file returns by deadline priority then order of receipt of information. If you have already agreed to wait until May to be contacted or have your return prepared, we appreciate your patience which allows us to server those that immediately need our services. Our goal is to keep everyone safe during this time and we have stopped all in person meetings and contact. All information must be uploaded to the client portal or be placed on a hold until May when we can reconnect. Thank you for your understanding during this difficult time.
