Bee Spring business Jones & Gravil Tax Service has announced that their office has moved to a drop-off service only for tax and accounting work, due to COVID-19. Co-owner Josh Jones said the lobby will be open only for the purpose of dropping of documents to be serviced by the tax company with no in-person meetings.
"We are asking customers to drop off their documents for us and we'll take care of the rest," he said. "You can either wait in your car until we complete your taxes, or you can come back and pick up your documents later. If we have any questions or further needs from you, we'll simply call you and ask."
Jones is also reminding the public that the deadline for filing your income taxes has been moved from April 15th to July 15, 2020.
The announcement came from U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin today as the nation copes with the effects of the coronavirus. Earlier this week it was announced that individuals and businesses would be allowed to delay paying their 2019 tax bills for 90 days past the usual April 15 deadline.
Jones also said you can call the office to schedule a drop-off and that documents can also be mailed via U.S. Postal Service. No emails can be accepted.
Office hours are M-F, 8am to 5pm and on Saturdays 8am until noon. Jones said other times can be arranged if needed, just call 270-286-4905.
