Let Us Help You Reach Your Financial Goals

To All Of Our Valued Clients

March 20, 2020 there was an announcement by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin that the IRS has issued a 90-day extension to the April 15th federal income tax filing deadline.  The extension is through July 15th and includes filing of taxes as well as tax liability payments for individuals and businesses.

We are continuing to monitor the IRS, Treasury and state tax and revenue departments and will keep you updated should there be additional changes.

If you have not already contacted us or begun the process of preparing for the tax filing deadline, please reach out to us today.  Our team members are working both in the office and remotely. We remain committed to meeting all your needs and answering all your requests.  In a world where social distancing is becoming commonplace, we do not want to be further than a phone call or email away from our clients.

We are continually monitoring the COVID-19 threat to our employees and our clients, as this is a fluid situation.  Remember that we are recommending that where possible, we conduct information sharing using electronic options. There are several options for document sharing:

  • Send items through our secure client portal.
  • We have a secure mail slot in the Sarasota office (in the wall to the right of our front entrance).
  • Sarasota Office concierge service: please alert us and we will come outside to pick up your documents in the parking lot.
  • Take advantage of the option to e-sign and receive e-delivery of your tax returns this year.
  • Instead of coming to the office to pick up your return, we can mail your return out to you.  Please call us to explore this option.

For more information and resources regarding COVID-19, please visit our accounting association’s website, BDO Alliance USA. 

Thank you for your patience and trust in Cavanaugh & Co. during these unusual circumstances. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact our office.

Your team at Cavanaugh & Co.
