Our continued response to COVID-19
In compliance with Governor Baker’s press conference on Sunday evening, we are mandating that all employees work remotely at home starting on Tuesday, March 17th as safety and health is our greatest concern. There will also be limited, if any, in-person meetings in or out of our office. Per our communication on Friday, we are leveraging technology to change the format of scheduled in-person meetings. If you currently have meetings scheduled with us in-person, either at our office or elsewhere, you will be contacted by your Edelstein team member to discuss other options. Likewise, if you were planning to deliver something to us in-person, connect with your team member to make the necessary alternative arrangements.
Given these unique current events, there has been talk that the IRS will extend the filing deadline and provide temporary relief for the timing of tax payments. Some states have started to enact their own extensions. However, at this time, there has been no official extension granted for Federal tax returns. For those clients who have already submitted their tax materials, we thank you. For those who have yet to submit their materials, please do so as soon as possible. We prefer to be prudent and not operate under the assumption the IRS will offer an extension. If you are able to provide your materials electronically, please do so through your Client Portal with us. If you do not have a Portal, please reach out to your Edelstein team member and we can set one up for you.
While this is an unprecedented time, we will continue to deliver the level of service that our clients and friends of our firm have come to expect from us. At the same time, we are committed to the health and safety of our team members and clients, and doing what we can as a firm to help keep COVID-19 from spreading.
As always, please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns.
