Due to the current Coronavirus situation, Hicks, Hicks and Braun will be proactive in limiting our interaction with outside individuals. We are prepared to continue to work on tax returns in our office and from home, but because of the recommendations that all person’s limit contact we will handle all items by drop-off, mail or upload to our secure SmartVault client portal

For your safety and the safety of our staff we are asking that you mail, fax or securely upload your documents to SmartVault access to Hicks, Hicks and Braun. We have a secure link on this new website that you can use to send your documents. Please do not send you documents with social security numbers and sensitive information thru regular email channels.

All S-Corporation and Partnership extensions have been filed pushing the due date out to Sept 15. We will be filing individual and C-Corporation extensions in the next few weeks, so that those due dates are moved out also. The U S Treasury granted taxpayers a 3-month extension for the payment of taxes for tax year 2019. During that 3-month period the interest and penalty will not accrue on amounts due. The State of CA has already granted a 2-month extension for tax payments to the FTB.
