At Avizo, our first priority is the well-being of our people, which extends beyond our team to our clients, business partners, and all the members of our communities. During this unprecedented time of dealing with the unknown surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19), we will be sharing regular updates and information to help provide peace of mind for you.
For the current time, our offices will remain open. In the event of a quarantine, our advisors will continue working remotely. For many years, we have put in place innovative technology and processes to allow flexibility for our team and uninterrupted service to you.
The tax deadline for filling and payments has been extended to July 15, 2020 for Federal and Alabama. However, we recommend you send us your information as soon as possible. If you are getting a refund, you can still receive it. If you owe money, you will still have until July to pay and you can prepare to do so.
Although we remain open, we encourage our clients to practice social distancing efforts and stay home if needed. Here are some of the options we’re providing to help reduce the spread of the virus:
- TaxCaddy for uploading your documents: This is most secure way to get information to us at this time. It is simple to use, it’s free, and it’s secure. Email Kari Wolfe at firstname.lastname@example.org to get an invitation to TaxCaddy.
- SafeSend to receive and sign your returns: We will send you an electronic version of your returns that you can sign through our SafeSend system. If you are unsure how to sign electronically, our staff can walk you through the process, just call our office at 251-928-2443.
- Make a Credit Card Payment Online: We’re temporarily waiving the 3% credit card transaction fee. This has the double- benefit of allowing you to credit the payment AND make it easily from home.
- Limited office hours: Starting Monday, March 23, we are limiting our hours to 8:00AM – 1:00PM. You may still call the office from 8:00AM-5:00PM, but any documents will need to be placed in drop-off boxes available outside each office. For those who choose to come in during the morning hours, please know we are practicing social distancing and there will be baskets in the lobbies for you to place your information.
