Are other accountants limiting face-to-face meetings with clients? I had never used organizers in the past, but now I wish I had, I'd like to limit clientele coming into the office.

We are sanitizing after each client. Limiting contact by spreading out appointments and keeping social distance.  I too hope the IRS comes up with a plan for this as I am not confident my client's will stay away if they are ill.

I'm letting my clients decide.   I Lysol the clients area and doorknobs after each one and only have 1 pen available for them to use and encourage them to take the pen with them and put a new one out for the next client!

One client yesterday brought me a full size bottle of hand sanitizer, the gift that shows you care!

If it's on the office wall, it's too late.  Post it on the door, then lock it.

Hand sanitizer is 60% alcohol.  The gift that shows they care doesn't have to be more than 80 proof.

Think the IRS needs to decide what we are doing as far as extending..If everyone is shutting down for 14 days to let this run it's course, we should tell clients to drop off , or reschedule..What are your thoughts on this...Most clients now are travel banned and working from home..

I have a sofa in my office so I figure I can be quarantined there and still work.  Only thing is showering.  But if no clients to visit, maybe a new type of look (and smell) for me.

I'm treating this as work as usual.  It's been such a late season anyways with investment houses getting their forms out late that I still have 40% of my 1040's not yet in.  It may be a good year to thin the herd of clients I've been meaning to do every year.  Besides, who needs to make money anyways........
