COVID-19 Pandemic Update

Our firm has shifted to teleworking from home effective March 19, 2020 to follow recommended best practices in terms of social distancing and protection for our team members and their families during this national and local emergency.

We made this decision after confirmation that the federal tax April 15 filing and payment deadline has been extended to July 15 (thus also including any first and second quarter estimated taxes).  California has followed the federal change, and since most individual state returns are based on federal returns, we expect similar action by other states in the immediate future.

Zick team members' office direct dial numbers (see the Contact Info tab of this site) have been forwarded to our cell phones.  Our physical office will be open from approximately 10:00am to 2:00pm on weekdays, or by prior arrangement with Debi, for pick up and drop off purposes.  All of our team members continue to work on a full-time basis, and we will complete client work as expeditiously as possible in this new environment.  However, we will be limiting meetings with clients to either virtual meetings or telephone conferences for the time being.

Thank you for your understanding and patience as we adjust to the changing conditions!  Please know we are working as quickly and efficiently as we can to complete work for you.  We sincerely appreciate your business and look forward to successfully weathering this crisis together.
