Coronavirus—Protecting you and our staff

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought many changes to our lives and has, for many, created additional stress and anxiety. We are not immune from the mental and emotional challenges brought on by the uncertainty either. Since the Illinois Executive Order was issued requiring non-essential businesses to cease activities other than those that could be done remotely, we have been complying with the order.

On March 20, the IRS issued a notice making it clear that tax returns and payments normally due on April 15, 2020, will now be due July 15, 2020. Since that time, the state of Illinois and many other states, have followed the IRS and changed the filing and payment deadline to July 15. With the extension of the filing date and the issuance of the stay at home order, we have made a few changes at the office. The tax preparer that works with me during tax season is no longer working so if you have been communicating with John Hebert during the last two months, please direct those questions to one of our other staff members.

Our staff is working from home as much as possible, so our office hours vary and we recommend that you call before making a needless trip to our office. We are continuing to work to complete the tax returns that we have in the process but with the current environment, we will likely not be able to complete all the returns prior to April 15 even if your materials were in the office by March 18. We will contact you as soon as your returns are completed and we will make arrangements with you at that time regarding the safest way to get your returns.

We value each of our clients and will continue to provide the same excellent service that you expect. We will all get through this as a nation and a community.
