Memories and Blessings
We mask for memories…memories we hope to make, memories we hope to share, and in memory of family, friends, and clients who won’t be here to welcome in the new year with us.
Three years ago, we first met Ms. E. She was a small woman in her seventies. She appeared frail from age but within minutes she filled the room with her personality. As she pointed at me, she said, “I’ve been looking for You!” And the rest is history. After retiring she spent her days giving her time and money to the many causes she believed in, always with a grateful and caring spirit. Sadly, in September she passed away shortly after receiving a COVID diagnosis. We know her memory will be a blessing to all those who had the privilege of meeting her! For us, this is the face of COVID-19 in our local community.
COVID-19 has completely changed the appearance and expectations of businesses throughout every local community. C2 Tax & Payroll Associates, located at 219 East Main Street, Suite 207, were fortunate to be classified as an essential business and remained open. In March of 2020, we made the decision that we would not sit down with our clients while preparing their tax returns. We quickly developed a new system which included a drop off appointment, telephone review, and pick up appointment.
This year C2 Tax & Payroll Associates will be expanding on the low contact system we put in place. Our waiting room will have two working stations, one will be designated for drop offs and the other for pick-ups. Reviews can be done by phone, video conference, or in person while maintaining a 6-foot distance.
The health of our staff, clients, and community is our top priority as we plan for the coming tax season. We have implemented the following safety measures:
- Masking anytime a client is in our office and we ask our clients to do the same.
- Social Distancing whenever possible.
- Clients are limited to our waiting room
- Only one family will be allowed to enter our waiting room at a time.
- Waiting room is stocked with hand sanitizer, gloves, masks, and disposable pens.
- Surfaces will be wiped down with disinfectant between appointments
We have also added a secure portal for document exchange. This delivery method is 100% contactless. Our clients will be able to begin their tax preparation process by uploading their documents and download their completed tax return from their home or office.
As a small business we rely on word of mouth referrals and reviews. If you don’t have a need for our services at this time, consider making a referral or mention C2 Tax & Payroll Associates in a Mechanicsburg Facebook group or Next Door.
