Coronavirus continues to affect day to day life, and the new concern is it could potentially threaten conventional in-person tax-filing activities, such as heading to your local tax return center to review your tax documents and sort out your tax return.
If the spread of the virus worsens, this could result in more people staying home for weeks on end, and tax office visits may not be possible. This makes it particularly taxing for those tax filers with complicated returns, or who may have questions about their return.
Now may be a good time to consider filing remotely with a tax professional. Additionally, taxpayers are urged to file before the deadline to avoid any delays with their tax return. Some professional tax services provide remote services, allowing taxpayers to securely upload documents, electronically sign their tax return, and file the return securely and safely from the comfort of their home. Whether you are an individual, or a business, it’s a good idea to play it safe and file remotely with the assistance of a qualified tax professional.
