Stay Safe with a B.O.P. At Your Back The Long Run: Women and Retirement When Markets React No Cash, No Checks, No Problem

Update on business hours and operations during Coronavirus. As of May 19, 2020

Our office is currently operating but the doors are closed for safety purposes.

If you have tax return information or papers to drop off, please use the drop off slot to the left of the front door.  If you are picking up a tax return or other paperwork, please call us from the parking lot. Stay in your car.  And someone will bring your information out to you and hand it to you in your car. Signed paperwork or E-file forms can be put in the drop off slot or mailed back to us for processing.

If you have questions on your returns, please call the office and one of the CPA's will gladly review your information over the phone with you.

Chris is conducting phone and ZOOM virtual meetings with clients on their investments. If you would like to set up a ZOOM meeting, please call the office to set up a time.

Our current office hours are as follows:

Monday thru Friday 8:00 am thru 4:00 pm.

If you are unable to pick up information in that time frame, please call the office and arrangements can be made to pick up returns at another convenient time.

Our current plan is to open our doors on Monday, June 15th.  We would ask that everyone wear a mask and practice social distancing for our protection as well as yours.

We thank you for your understanding. 

God Bless and stay safe everyone.
