We would like to share the steps we are taking at Rikard & Neal to do our part in limiting the spread of COVID-19. We want to do everything we can to keep both our clients and our staff as safe as possible, while still providing you the highest level of service. Our office has contingency plans to allow our staff to work from home, so we will be able to handle your tax filing needs even if there is a general quarantine. We intend to keep our offices open throughout tax season, but as suggested by the CDC, we will limit person-to-person contact as much as possible. We will also suspend face-to-face meeting to the extent possible and replace them with telephone meetings to go over any questions or concerns you have with your tax return. With that in mind, we would like to remind you of the options you have to send & receive data and to sign your tax return.
