COVID 19 Notice: 3.26.2020

The coronavirus has affected many people throughout the world.  The IRS has extended the time to file and pay (if you owe) until July 15, 2020.  

Governor Inslee has issued a stay at home order to the non-essential businesses in the state of Washington; we are considered an essential business and are working to complete our client's tax returns as quickly and efficiently as we can, so those getting refunds can get the funds they need sooner. We are also continuing to work on each file whether a refund or owing.

We are very concerned with trying to keep our clients safe as well as ourselves during this time.  We have postponed meeting clients face to face for tax appointments as well as drop off and pick up of returns. The only options we will be using at this time are for you to use the portal to upload your documents to us, or to mail, or fax to us at 360-479-8992. If you have a return to pick up, please contact us to make arrangements to have those sent to you.

We encourage you to stay home if you can and utilize our portal and electronic signature program to meet the State's social distancing rule.

Thank you,  Bradley W. Orser & Staff
