Price Kong is closely monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and is taking reasonable precautions to ensure the safety of our clients and personnel. Considering many of you have upcoming in-person appointments with us, and/or have not yet filed your 2019 returns, please see the following:
- In-person appointments. As of now, all upcoming appointments remain in effect. Please come in as scheduled; however, if you prefer to meet telephonically or via video conference at your scheduled date and time, please let us know and we will be happy to accommodate you.
- Re-think the handshake. When you do arrive at our office, no one will take offense if you prefer not to shake hands, and please be aware that your Price Kong professional may not extend a hand in greeting. This is a precaution to keep you safe and healthy, and we absolutely respect your decision.
- Tax deadline. Last night, the President mentioned the April 15 personal tax deadline may be delayed. As of today, the IRS has not made an official announcement. We will inform you as soon as we know more. In the meantime, we are moving forward assuming no delay, and we’ll let you know if we make any adjustments based on what/if specific changes are made to the deadline and when tax payments are due.
