Coronavirus—Protecting you and our team

We understand that everyone is concerned about Coronavirus. And we are as well, which is why we are taking precautions to keep our clients and our staff safe.  At this point, we are open, and our team is still in the office working, but that could change at any time. 


While the threat of Coronavirus exists, we are asking both clients and staff to refrain from visiting White & Claassen, LLC onsite if you meet any of the following criteria:

  • If you have been exposed to COVID-19.  (e.g. anyone in your home or that you have had contact with has a confirmed, or suspected case of COVID-19.)
  • If you have recently traveled outside of the state, country, or to a Level 3 area.
  • If you have any of the symptons associated with COVID-19, such as fever, cough, and/or shortness or breath.


We believe everyone has an obligation to do what they can to reduce public interactions and practice dutiful personal health and hygiene habits.  Our main focus is the continued good health of everyone.


We will continue to prepare & process tax returns. At this point, the Federal government has announced an extension of time to pay any tax due, but there are many unknowns with this news, such as how it affects estimated tax payments, and how states will respond.  So, we are continuing under the assumption that the April 15 deadline is unchanged until we receive specific guidance from the IRS.


We are limiting all in-person meetings until further notice. We have video conferencing capabilities through Zoom, and of course, phone calls are always welcome. 


If you have documents that you need to send to us, you can still send them through the mail.   Our secure document exchange service is also available for both uploading of documents to us, and downloading from us.  It is accessible through our website:, using the Client Center link in the upper right corner.


If you are a local client, rather than meeting with you personally to pick up and sign your tax returns, we will email them to you. Please promptly sign the signature forms and return them to the office, either by scan and email, by picture, or by regular mail.  If you do not have access/ability to perform these tasks via email, we will be in touch to make other arrangements with you once your tax returns have been completed.


We know that each of you are facing challenges of your own based on the impact of COVID-19 on workplaces, schools, and family circumstances.  Please let us know if there is any way that the White & Claassen team can assist you during this time.


Please be sure to reach out to us with concerns or questions.
