When will you receive your refund? The answer depends on how you filed your return. The IRS should issue your refund check within six to eight weeks of filing a paper return.

As the coronavirus (COVID-19) threatens our communities and disrupts our lives, we want to let you know what our firm is doing to respond to this public health crisis. Our number one priority is the safety and well-being of our employees, clients, families and the community in which we live and work. We are assessing the situation daily, remaining vigilant and following recommendations from the World Health Organization, US Centers for Disease Control and local authorities.
While we remain focused on continued service to our clients we are having to do this through “social distancing”. We will not be scheduling in person meetings with clients until further notice. This obviously creates significant disruption and delays. Please be assured we are making every effort to complete your tax returns as soon as we can.
In our effort to comply with recommendations from health care professionals, our office remains open on a limited basis. Please call ahead if you need to drop off or pick up information.
We also wanted to inform you of the latest developments that affect your Federal tax filing and Federal income tax payments. On Friday, March 20, 2020, the Treasury Department and the IRS issued Notice 2020-18 which extends the due date for filing Federal income tax returns and making Federal income and self- employment tax payments due April 15, 2020 to July 15, 2020. The extended due date is automatic and does not require the filing of an extension. Please note that this notice extends the due date for the first Federal estimated tax payment for 2020 from April 15, 2020 to July 15, 2020, but does not grant relief for the second 2020 Federal estimated tax payment due on June 15, 2020.
We are closely monitoring potential changes that we anticipate to the state filing due dates. However, as of this communication, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts has not changed their tax filing due date which remains April 15, 2020. We are proceeding accordingly to meet the existing deadlines. Please contact your legislators if you would like to be part of a movement to request that Massachusetts change the filing deadline. The contact information for your state representatives and state senators can be found at this website.
Please communicate with Dillon Bodley and Associates PC as you have done in the past. We are all available by telephone and email.
We appreciate your patience and understanding and we hope you and your loved ones are well. If you have any questions or concerns please contact us.
