Changes due to COVID-19

During these unusual times we, like everyone else, are concerned for the health and safety of our clients, staff, and families. Now that the Federal Government has extended the tax filing deadline, and Washington State has issued a stay home order, we have adjusted our work structures. As a financial services company, we remain fully operational. Our professional staff will be working from home as much as we can and remain available to answer your questions.

We continue to monitor changes in financial markets as well. While each client and portfolio is different, our approach to asset allocation means that your investments are diversified and representative of your specific risk profile. While it’s never fun to watch as the markets react negatively to these unprecedented times, we strongly believe that the long-term approach will once again prove to be the best path. As always, we are available to discuss your specific situation with you.

We ask clients to avoid in person visits to the office. Send information electronically or via mail or delivery service. You can contact us by e-mail or phone and if we aren’t available to answer your call at the moment, we will get back to you just as soon as possible.

While the April 15 tax filing and payment deadline has been extended, we will continue to work through the backlog of tax returns to try to complete them as soon as possible. Although it may take a little longer than usual, we urge everyone to continue to follow up on missing information and open items to keep things moving. Keep in mind that the April 15th payments were extended but at this point, the June 15th payments have not.

Obviously, these are unusual circumstances. Rest assured we are working to serve our clients as you have come to expect for over 40 years.
