Financial Services Privacy Policy

CPAs, like all providers of personal financial services, are now required by law to inform their clients of their policies regarding privacy of client information. CPAs have been and continue to be bound by professional standards of confidentiality that are even more stringent than those required by law. Therefore, we have always protected your right to privacy. You may find a copy of our Financial Services Privacy Policy here.

Year-End Tax Planning in 2020

This year has been unlike any other in recent memory. Front and center, the COVID-19 pandemic has touched virtually every aspect of daily living and business activity in 2020. In addition to other financial consequences, the resulting fallout is likely to have a significant impact on year-end tax planning for both individuals and small businesses. For your convenience, we have created a website page with information about individual, business and financial tax planning tips. This will be updated continuously so check back often.

Important Due Dates

Please submit your tax information as early as possible - even if you are missing some information (for example, K-1 forms, which often arrive much later). This will enable us to begin the preparation process and help you anticipate any tax obligations you may incur. If we do not receive the bulk of your information by March 27, 2021, we will be extending your 2020 tax return.
