Our Precautions Related to COVID-19
In the interest of protecting the health of our employees and clients during the COVID-19 pandemic, Benjamin H. Johnson CPA is taking the following precautions:
There will be no in-office appointments with clients starting March 24th to April 15th. Phone appointments will continue to be scheduled.
Clients are highly encouraged to scan any documents they need to send us and send them via their secure portal. If you do not yet have a secure portal set up, contact our office and we will set one up for you.
You may mail documents to us or use our drop box at the rear of the building.
You may deliver documents during business hours by calling the office on your phone in the parking lot and we will meet you there for the pickup.
Completed tax returns can be delivered to clients by mail and secure portals. You may pick up your return during business hours by calling the office on your phone in the parking lot and we will meet you there for the delivery.
Payments for the completed tax return preparation service are due upon receipt of your return and can be made via credit card over the phone or via check through the mail.
Although we are taking the above precautions to limit in-person interactions between our staff and clients, our office will remain fully staffed and our operating hours will not change. We will continue to process tax returns at our normal pace as we receive the required information from our clients.
As far as tax implications for business and individuals related to the COVID-19 pandemic, there are many implications which continue to evolve as the government’s response to the situation develops. For the latest, most accurate, and most up-to-date information on the tax implications of the pandemic, visit the IRS pandemic resource page, the Virginia Department of Taxation coronavirus resource page, or, for states other than Virginia, the website of your state’s department of taxation.
