To Our Valued Clients and Friends,
We understand the last several weeks have been both confusing and uncertain, elevating levels of stress and anxiety while imposing varying degrees of fear and concern. To compound the ever-present conditions, it’s the heart of tax season and many individuals and business owners are wondering the extent to which the Coronavirus pandemic and state restrictions will impact your filings.
To those of you who are ill with COVID-19, or have loved ones who are, we hold you in the light and are thinking of you and wishing you a speedy and full recovery. To any who may be grieving, the Ullrich Delevati family grieves with you. To those with questions about your financial interests and tax filings, we are here to support you in every way!
As an essential business, our firm is staying open and diligently working to complete all tax filings in a timely manner. Both the State of California and Federal government have extended the filing and tax payment deadlines to July 15, 2020. We understand this and will use it as necessary. However, we are aware of the current level of anxiety in the world and are making every effort to complete returns on time, in order to help minimize the stress and anxiety tax day brings and ensure those of you receiving refunds will get your money in a timely manner.
With that said, we have made changes to our internal practices in order to protect both our staff and our clientele. This includes social distancing and limiting visitors. We are now conducting client interviews via telephone and kindly request that you send your information electronically or arrange for a drop off, prior to your scheduled appointment. For client preferring to complete an electronic document transfers, we have a secured web portal and invite you to contact our office to establish your account. For those wishing to drop off, please call our office to schedule a day and time.
Within our office, we are making every effort to practice social distancing as well as encouraging frequent hand washing and surface cleaning within the office. Where possible, staff will be working remotely to minimize exposure. Rest assured we have ramped up our online security to ensure any and all personal and financial data is secured. We have also requested that any staff showing or feeling any signs of illness stay at home and are monitoring all recommended best practices to prevent and reduce the spread of COVID-19.
We thank you for your continued support and your willingness to accommodate the office modifications during this time. We are thankful for each of you, appreciate you entrusting us with your tax preparation, and wish you well as we collectively navigate tax season and work to stop the spread of Coronavirus.
Tony Delevati and the Ullrich Delevati Team
