Ritz Holman CPAs Updated Response to COVID-19

To our valued clients,

Our world has seemingly changed overnight. With this in mind, first and foremost, we need to consider the health and safety of our family, co-workers, clients, friends and the community at-large. As a result, we have decided to close our physical office. This decision was based on recommendations from the CDC to limit person-to-person contact.

Thanks to technology, all of our team members are now working remotely from their homes. This will allow us to be fully operational with the ability to maintain social distance.

Although many of our operational procedures will need to be altered, our staff is fully committed to providing you with outstanding service. For your safety as well as those of our team, we are requesting that interactions be limited to emails, texts, telephone and fax (414-271-7464), along with video and teleconferencing options.

Beyond our office procedures, the Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin announced that taxpayers can delay filing their tax returns and delay paying their income tax until July 15, 2020. The state of Wisconsin has also extended the filing and payment deadlines to July 15, 2020. We will keep you updated as other changes become available.

Since we are all working remotely, we do not have the same printing capabilities, as you are accustomed to. For the time being, all completed tax returns, tax payment and estimate vouchers, authorization forms, financial statements, etc. will be emailed either through our secure web portal along with filing instructions, or through our tax software, where you will be able to sign your return electronically. We also realize that not all of our clients have printing capabilities. If you are unable to print, please contact your Partner directly via email or phone.  Each Partner’s individual contact information is on our firm’s website www.ritzholman.com.

Finally, we do have one request. Our goal is to continue to work and take care of each and every one of you; furthermore, we are requesting that you continue to forward your documents. Even though returns and payments are not due until July 15th, we are committed to taking care of your needs now. This will help us navigate rapidly changing guidance.

Thank you for your loyalty.  We are grateful for all our clients. Be well and stay healthy!
