Dear client and friends:
There has been a lot of legislation passed recently pertaining to income tax filings and tax season. Here are some of the important changes impacting taxpayers:
- The Treasury department has postponed the tax filing and payment deadlines originally due April 15, 2020 to July 15, 2020. This includes the first quarter 2020 estimated tax installment which is now due July 15, 2020. Please note, the June 15, 2020 second quarter installment due dates have not changed. Failure to file, failure to pay and any interest and penalties are also postponed and do not begin to accrue until July 16, 2020. This includes individuals, trusts, corporations and any other taxpayers with an original April 15, 2020 deadline.
- Minnesota has followed suit and postponed the tax filing and payment deadline with a few differences. Tax returns originally due April 15, 2020 are now due July 15, 2020. This includes 2019 balance due tax payments which are now due July 15, 2020. Failure to file, failure to pay and any interest or penalties are included in the postponement. Please note, this does not include the first quarter 2020 estimated tax payment which is still due on April 15, 2020.
- Many states have also extended deadlines. To view the complete list of states that extended their deadlines, please click here.

To our clients and friends,
At TDHCD, the well-being of our employees and clients is of the utmost importance. Therefore, we are taking specific precautions to protect our staff and clients/visitors during the current outbreak of Coronavirus. With more confirmed cases being reported daily, we are considering the potential impact and how we can best protect our clients and staff. In light of the current situation, we are cancelling face to face meeting until further notice.
Below, we’ve outlined how we are working to minimize potential risk as we work towards April 15th together.
Electronic and Other Options: We are recommending that we exchange information electronically wherever possible. While having face to face meetings can certainly alleviate stress this time of the year, we can accomplish much with telephone and electronic sharing. To provide us with documents, you can upload to our client portal, which is available on our website. If you have not yet registered your client portal, contact our administrative staff at 763-545-2353 to assist with setup. We encourage clients to take advantage of e-signature options and electronic delivery of individual tax returns. We have other options to accept information securely including the use of an alternative electronic method (ShareFile). Please contact our office if you need assistance with using ShareFile. Another option is mailing in your information. If needed, you still may drop off your information at our front desk area.
Remote Considerations: Because we take the spread of this virus seriously, we have a plan of action in the event that our physical office needs to close. Should this occur, we want to assure you that we will do our very best to see that the workflow is not disrupted. We are working diligently to ensure that our employees are able to work remotely for as long as they may need to.
Although our organizer indicates we need all of your tax information to us by March 24, 2020 to ensure your return will be completed by the April 15, 2020 please consider sending your information now. That way if we need to close our offices your taxes can be worked by our employees remotely.
TDHCD is monitoring this developing situation closely. If any major changes occur, such as the need for an office closure, we will update you immediately with details. Thank you for your patience and trust in TDHCD during these unprecedented circumstances. If you have any questions, please call our office at 763-545-2353.
