How we are currently operating
Accounting services is among the listed necessary services, so we are still open during Utah’s “Stay home. Stay safe” orders.
We have implemented extensive sanitation practices and are wiping down desks, chairs, and pens in between each client and practicing social distancing by maintaining 6 feet of distance between all personnel and clients. We generally have less than 8 people in our office at any one point in time.
While we are currently still open. If you want to come in we are meeting by appointment only. However, we strongly encourage you to work with us remotely. You can drop off documents or email them to us. We will then communicate with you via phone and email. See below for more details.
The IRS has extended the deadline to pay and file any income taxes due for 2019. The IRS and we are both strongly encouraging those who are receiving a refund to still file as soon as possible.
