A message on COVID-19 from Mike Reilly, Managing Partner:

As the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation continues to evolve, be assured that the health and well-being of our employees, clients, colleagues and their families are of utmost importance to us.  We are closely monitoring the news and CDC directives and adjusting our policies based upon facts as they arise.

All our offices are open and conducting business. In line with Governor Cuomo’s Executive Order, although our business is considered an “Essential Business,” nearly 100% of our personnel are already working remotely.  All of our professionals are accessible by phone or email to meet client needs.  To help protect and contain the spread of the virus, we have communicated to our personnel to switch all in-person meetings and on-site client work arrangements to virtual meetings, phone calls and remote work arrangements.  For our individual tax clients, we request that you either send in or email (via our secure email link) your tax information vs. an in-person meeting, or you can drop off your tax information to our office.

The Internal Revenue Service announced they are providing special tax filing and tax payment relief to individuals and businesses in response to the COVID-19 outbreak.  In this historic move, the IRS has pushed the April 15 tax filing and tax payment deadline to July 15 this year for taxpayers who haven’t filed their 2019 Federal tax returns.  New York State extended their tax return filing and tax payment deadline to July 15, as well.  First quarter 2020 estimated tax payments due April 15 are also deferred until July 15.

To keep you informed as further changes take place, we have created a Coronavirus Resource Center where we will disseminate important information.  We encourage you to visit this page regularly for updates.

Thank you for your loyalty, and trust that we are doing everything we can to provide a safe and a healthy environment for our D&M family and the communities we serve.
