Dear Valued Clients and Friends,
The health and safety of our clients, colleagues, and families have always been our first priority. Given the ongoing COVID-19 global pandemic, we are taking every precaution possible to protect the health and safety of our team and their interactions with you. Windes is continuing to follow the CDC recommendations as they are issued and we are prepared to adapt quickly as the situation evolves. Our offices remain open and staffed.
We are regularly cleaning and disinfecting our offices and employees who feel ill have been asked to remain at home. For those impacted by the ongoing school closures or who are in a high-risk group, we have offered the choice of working off-site. In many cases, our workforce is able to work remotely in a technologically secure environment with limited or no impact on our ability to serve you.
We know that all of you are impacted in some way by this pandemic. We will work with you to coordinate the services that we provide and are aware that you have likely developed your own protocols for person-to-person contact, sharing of physical materials, and other preventative measures that you deem to be reasonable.
Please note, the IRS is contemplating an extension to the April 15 tax filing deadline. The IRS would likely extend the deadline by several weeks or waive fees associate with late filings. Governor Newsom has also announced a plan for an extension and we are currently determining the specifics and requirements for this.
Rest assured that we have a task force and leadership team who are working tirelessly to ensure that we are prepared for any contingency in serving you during these challenging times.
We want to encourage you to stay informed of things that you can do to keep yourself and your family safe using reliable sources. For your convenience, we have provided the links below, as well as the attached CDC informational sheet, to help prevent COVID-19 from spreading in your home and community.
