To Our Existing and Prospective Clients:

The safety and well-being of our valued clients and employees is always our top priority. We understand that the rapidly evolving situation with the coronavirus (COVID-19) is causing uncertainty in our community. Senter, CPA is closely monitoring reports from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), along with local health departments, and we continue to encourage our staff to take appropriate measures to control the spread of any virus.

During these difficult times, we highly encourage all clients to utilize their online portal from home, accessible 24/7, to upload pertinent tax documentation versus dropping materials off at our Clarkston office.  Along with file exchange capabilities for tax preparation, you can view your completed tax return, sign necessary e-filing authorizations and pay invoices. If you need assistance getting registered for these services, call our office at (248) 934-0550. Or click here to access your online portal now.

At this time, Senter, CPA is transitioning our face-to-face meetings to conference calls for the remainder of the month. We will reevaluate our meeting protocol for April and communicate those changes with you in a timely manner.  For those clients who must visit our office during normal business hours, be sure to schedule a brief visit with our team prior to coming in. Rest assured that we have intensified our routine cleaning schedules to extensively wipe down flat surfaces, computer equipment, and door handles with antibacterial wipes and sprays. By eliminating contact and  rigorous cleaning, we will do our part to keep our families, clients and community safe.

Finally, we anticipate that the U.S. Treasury and the IRS could announce an extension of the April 15th deadline by as much as 90 days, which allows for a waiver of penalties and interest for most taxpayers. We will continue to keep you updated as we receive more information.

We appreciate your trust in us, and we will continue in our efforts to provide you the service you’ve come to expect from us.
