Due to Covid-19, the filing and payment deadlines for federal taxes have been extended until July 15th.

MN and WI have also followed the federal example and extended the due date for returns and most payments until July 15th. 

We are updating our hours during this time and will no longer be open on Saturdays.

Our current office hours are Monday-Thursday 8:30-6:00 and Friday 8:30 -4:30.

 

                          

 

Tax season is our busy time of year, but at Stenseth, Samuelson & Boese, Ltd. we are committed to offering services that do more than simply file your tax return. We strive to understand your individual situation so that we can answer all your tax-related questions and offer advice on ways to save you money in the future. Our tax season page offers more insight into our tax preparation services for both new and established clients.

 

Important update to our services do to the Covid-19 pandemic:

Dear Clients and Friends,
 
As the government and health officials continue to provide new recommendations to slow the spread of Covid-19, it has become clear that the best way to protect our community is to reduce all unnecessary social contact. Therefore, starting March 18th, we have decided to suspend in-person services at our office until the situation changes. This includes meetings, as well as drop-offs and pick-ups of tax returns.
 
We will still remain open and ready to serve your needs for tax preparation, but we request that you use one of our remote options to provide us with your tax information and for delivery of your finished returns.
 
Your online account, standard mailing/delivery services or fax are all good ways to send us your documents, and we are here and ready to answer any questions over the telephone, by email, or even video chat.
 
If you live in the immediate area and do not feel comfortable mailing your documents, you may still hand-deliver them to our office in a sealed envelope during our normal business hours. Simply follow the posted instructions to fill out a drop-off form and then knock on the door.
 
If your documents are already in the office, we will call you when your returns are finished and you can decide if you would like your returns mailed, uploaded or extended.
 
Do not hesitate to contact us by calling 651-739-1000 or by replying to this email. Our door may be closed, but we will do our best to keep our communications open and ready to serve you in any way we can.
 
Below, you will find a recap of the options available to you for delivery of your finished returns, for dropping off your information, and for communicating with us during this time.
 
Sincerely,
 
Stenseth Samuelson & Boese, Ltd.

 

Keep your account safe by enabling Multi-factor Authentication.

Passwords are often the weak point in online security, and if you don't set a strong one, they can be vulnerable to compromise. 

Enabling multi-factor authentication on your online account means that unless hackers have both your password and your phone, they won't be able to get to your information. Click here for instructions on how to enable multi-factor authentication for your online account.

Scam Warning!

Scammers are posing to be from the IRS and using scare tactics to take advantage of their victims. They often claim that a person is delinquent on taxes and then try to collect those supposedly late taxes by specific payments over the phone. They also use the ruse to trick people into giving them their Social Security Number or other sensitive information while they pretend to verify the victim's account.

Don't be fooled! There are some basic ways to tell the scammers from the real IRS and protect your information:

  • The IRS will never call you about taxes without sending you a paper bill and assigning you an agent.

  • They will never demand immediate payment by specific methods, such as over the phone.

  • They will never threaten to call the local police if you don't pay immediately.

  • They will never ask for credit or debit card numbers over the phone.

If you get a call from someone claiming to be from the IRS, don't give them your information. Even if you think that you might owe some taxes, hang up and call the IRS back on their published number 1.800.829.1040 to ask about any unpaid taxes.
