During a recent Oval Office address, President Trump said the IRS would extend the April 15, 2020, federal income tax filing deadline. However, as of now, the IRS has not yet announced a new date, and it’s not yet clear if the new deadline would apply to all taxpayers. Or how Georgia filing would be affected. So, we are still proceeding as usual with these important dates:
- MARCH 20th is the final date to email/drop off your paperwork to us with a guarantee that we can file your tax return by April 15.
- If you email/drop off your paperwork between MARCH 20-27, we will attempt to make the April 15 deadline, but we cannot guarantee it. We may have to file an extension.
- If you email/drop off your paperwork after MARCH 27, we will definitely have to file an extension for you. Please contact us ASAP as the extension deadline is also April 15.
Because of the concern over the coronavirus, we are taking precautions at the office to prepare for whatever may happen. We are planning to continue operations unless the virus becomes active in Fannin County.
If you have an appointment and feel safer not attending you are welcome to drop off your tax info to us. You are also welcome to email all documents to us and we can email back your signature forms. Also, we are taking precautions to keep our office clean and sanitary, and employees and customers protected.
If any changes to our office schedule or tax laws happen, we will post them on Facebook, so please make sure you are following us there.
