COVID-19 Announcement

NEW Federal & Indiana Tax Due Date 7-15-2020

COVID-19 Announcement

Dear Clients,

We understand this has been an extremely stressful time over the last couple weeks. The world has seemingly changed overnight with the global pandemic coupled with the meltdown of the financial markets. First and foremost, we need to consider the health and safety of our family and friends, team members, clients and the community over heightened concerns about the Coronavirus (COVID-19). We are closely monitoring the CDC’s recommendations to limit person-to-person contact.

Therefore, we have initiated a policy that will allow us to remain fully operational while maintaining social distance by limiting foot traffic through the office and increased regular cleanings as preventative measures.

During this time, you can expect the same level of service. For your safety, as well as those of our team, we ask that you limit your interaction with us to phone calls and emails. To allow for recommended social distancing we are moving to allow signing and review of tax returns primarily electronically.

If you are unable to sign electronically, we urge you to consider waiting to file until closer to the new July 15 deadline, opting into using our mail service, or setting up a signing appointment in an isolated, cleaned, area in our office.

As of March 20, 2020 IRS announced that the tax due date for filing Federal income tax returns and making Federal tax payments that were due April 15, 2020 is automatically postponed to July 15, 2020. Extension forms are not required. There are no late penalties or interest on any balance owed that would have been due in April. The state of Indiana has also extended their filing deadline until July 15. At this time Michigan has not.

These precautionary measures have been taken to limit the potential spread of the virus, to support our employees in this challenging time, and ensure we maintain our ability to serve you, our client, for the long term. Thank you for your understanding. We value your support.

If you have any questions, please contact us by phone 574-272-1400 or email pts@penrodtax.com. Please be safe and stay healthy.
