TAX SEASON 

  • LIMITED APPOINTMENTS-As the end of last tax season had a different look and feel, so will this upcoming tax season. In order to minimize exposure to our clients and staff we will be limiting our appointments. This means we will be taking our open appointments on a first come-first serve basis. This will allow our staff to take the extra precautions in between appointments while also reducing the amount of contact, “in the office”.

 

  • SAFETY MEASURES-Our staff will be sanitizing the office frequently throughout the day. They will wear a mask when clients enter the office. We ask that our clients also wear a mask while in the office and be respectful of social distancing amongst other clients if in the office at the same time. We will make every attempt to minimize contact with others by situating our waiting rooms accordingly, etc.
