To Our Clients…

The Covid-19 pandemic has put all of us in a unique situation. It is something that we never thought would happen. To any of you who are in the medical field, we appreciate everything you are doing to help keep us all safe.

There are many of us either working from home or unable to work at all due to the restrictions in place. We have been receiving questions regarding the filing deadlines, the stimulus packages, and small business loans. We have added some links below that will help answer these questions.

We are still working very hard to have your returns filed by 4/15/21 despite the federal tax return extension to 5/17/21. If you are expecting a refund, we want to make sure that you receive it in a timely fashion. Unfortunately, with the new stimulus bill there have been some updates at the federal level which prevent us from filing some tax returns. They are working quickly to finalize new tax forms so all returns can be filed once again. We are working to make sure everything is done correctly to alleviate any stress or concern on your end. We look forward to continuing to work with everyone. Please continue to stay safe.

Sincerely,

Michael & David Sanatar
