A few quick updates:
The province is starting to relax some of the travel/business restrictions that have been in place for the last number of weeks to help stem the spread of the COVID-19 virus. While we certainly look forward to the day when things will be fully opened-up, we continue to operate on a modified basis here in the office.
We are also keeping a close eye on the calendar.
As you know, the Canada Revenue Agency extended the deadline for filing personal tax returns form April 30th to June 1st.
June 1st is now very quickly approaching.
If you would like us to prepare your tax return this year and have not already been in touch with the office, please e-mail or contact the office by phone as soon as possible. We want to ensure that we can complete all returns by June 1st however we’ll need your assistance to help make this happen.
IF you are able to, please continue to send your tax information electronically to our office using my e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org . Whether by PDF, Excel, Word, snapped pictures on your phone – if you can send things electronically please do. Please bring your information in as soon as possible.
If you are not able to send your information electronically, we are able to receive it here at the office in person – just at an appropriate physical distance. Contact the office for more details.
While we continue to not have face-to-face appointments, we are working our regular tax-season hours, including Saturday mornings. The majority of the staff are working directly in the office full-time now with select staff working remotely. Our office and the common areas of the building continue to be cleaned and disinfected nightly, and while in the office we physically distance our selves as best as possible.
On behalf of myself, and everyone here at Mercer & Mercer, thank you again for your continued patience and support, and we hope that you continue to stay healthy and safe!
