important update

unemployment benefits

With the new Covid-19 relief package, the IRS will not tax $ 10,200 in unemployment benefits. We will not transmit returns from individuals who received unemployment until we receive instructions from the IRS. Once we have these instructions, we will make the necessary adjustments and transmit your returns.
