Letter from our firm
To our clients and friends:
We are certainly in a time of disruption and change during the Coronavirus outbreak. The City of Edmonds, and subsequently the State of Washington, have now issued “stay-at-home” orders. We encourage all of you to follow these protocols and keep yourselves safe and healthy. While CPA firms in Washington are deemed to be “essential” businesses, we are also making concerted efforts to keep all of us here at The Hagen Firm safe. Here is what you can expect from us operationally.
Nearly all our staff have already transitioned to a “work from home” model. While it can be challenging to continue operations in this new format, we have successfully made the transition and are making sure that critical and time-sensitive tasks are completed. Payroll, bookkeeping and tax filings will continue in this new work format. While we consider the physical office to be closed, we are still open for business.
We will continue to communicate with you. Our phone lines remain open and will be answered. Employees are equipped with an office phone at their homes and can receive transferred calls. All staff continue to have access to email. We will also continue to process mail Monday through Friday. Pick-ups and drop-offs of materials are discouraged during this time, but you may call the office to schedule something.
The best way to exchange information or “meet” with us is by using our online tools. Please use your Liscio web portal or the mobile app to provide tax documents and other materials that you may need to get to us. We can also schedule video calls over Zoom. If you don’t yet have a Liscio portal, please contact us and we can get you set up.
Updated information will be important as legislation evolves. Please check back here frequently for updated information on new developments impacting tax filings, loan programs, employment matters and other tax law changes. If you scroll down this page, you’ll see summaries of the latest federal updates.
We’re in this together. The impact of a crisis of this magnitude will be felt in many ways for the foreseeable future. Some small businesses will not be able to weather this storm, people are losing jobs and it’s easy to let fear creep in. But we can all help our local community. When possible I encourage us all to shop our local merchants, pick up a curbside meal, look after our loved ones, donate to a community non-profit, or share an encouraging word with our neighbors. Together we are better. I’m looking forward to the time we can once again shake hands with confidence and share a hug from less than six feet away.
