Coronavirus—Protecting you and our staff
March 25, 2020
Dear Valued Clients,
We understand that everyone is concerned about Coronavirus. We are as well, which is why we are taking precautions to keep our clients and our staff safe. While the current “stay-at-home” order issued by Indiana’s Governor Holcomb is in effect, our office will be closed to visitors.
All in-person appointments have been cancelled and instead, we are offering tax document drop off, meetings via telephone, and/or meetings via Zoom video conferencing. If you need to communicate with our team, please do so through your secure online client account, by email, or by phone.
If you have tax, accounting, or payroll documents to deliver to us, we request that you submit them in one of the following ways: 1.) Your secure online client Liscio account, 2.) Email (password protected), 3.) Mail, or, 4.) By dropping them off at our office drop box (located at our front door). Please be aware that for the safety of our staff, any physical documents that we receive will not be processed for 2-4 days.
If your tax return has been completed and you would like to sign the required paperwork for e-filing, we are happy to forward that to you electronically for e-signature via your secure online client Liscio account. If you would prefer to come to our office to sign, we will reopen with regular business hours at the conclusion of Governor Holcomb’s “stay-at-home” directive.
Our primary focus during this time is everyone’s wellbeing! We highly recommend that you visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website and/or your state’s Department of Health for current guidelines on good hygiene practices to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and other respiratory diseases. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prepare/prevention.html

We remain positive that we are all in this together and will unify to help our friends, clients, family, and each other in any way that we can.
Let us know how we can be a resource to you. We are here to help!
