To All Clients and Friends of the Firm:
We want to first thank you for being a valued and continuing client of AZ Southwest CPA Services, PLLC!
Amid the announcements and guidelines surrounding the Coronavirus COVID-19, we want you to know that AZ Southwest CPA Services has robust technology options, including a client portal for elevated security in exchanging documents and finished work product (like tax returns) with clients. We encourage you to use that option when possible.
We are also actively monitoring the latest reports from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the IRS, Arizona Department of Revenue, and local/regional news sources. We are continually analyzing how this information and data may affect financial and tax matters for you as a client.
For now, year 2019 income tax return due dates have been moved, as well as payments of income taxes, from April 15 to the new date of July 15, 2020. However, the essential services of filing tax returns still remain in place, and you are encouraged to file the return or a regular 6-month extension as soon as you are able as the details regarding the new filing/payment date have not been finalized.
Furthermore, there is currently only reasonable regulatory limit on our firm, such as following best hygiene practices in the office. So, we are still available to help you with tax matters through these dynamic times by appointment if handling your tax needs in person is a preference. We are available for tax consultations at pre-arranged times during normal business hours. But, please keep in mind that we need to limit our office occupancy to less than 10 staff and clients at any given time. As we have 7 staff members, we highly recommend making an appointment beforehand to ensure we can meet with you upon arrival.
In the spirit of current guidelines, we highly encourage all our clients to take advantage of AZ Southwest CPA Services’ online portal system mentioned above, which allows clients to upload their tax documents from the comforts of home with elevated security. If you are interested, please reach out to us by phone (520-888-3696) or email Renee (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will email you a sign-up invitation.
If you have been personally impacted by COVID-19 or you are wondering about the ramifications of the government announcements on your business, we are here to help. Please feel free to give us a call and we will provide or help locate expert guidance for your situation, as well as provide a listening and concerned ear during these ever-changing times.
Thank you for trusting us with your tax and financial / accounting needs. We will continue to closely monitor the situation and evaluate any additional measures to support you and the community as needs arise.
