DMA's COVID-19 Response | Our Client Commitment

Effective September 15, 2020, we have paused updates to the tracking charts that we have maintained since March, as COVID-related legislation and updates have slowed significantly. We will continue to monitor state legislation and updates and will update our COVID-19 resources as necessary and will post blogs to keep you informed.


During this period of uncertainty, continuing to deliver outstanding client service and ensuring the health and safety of our DMA employee-owners are, as always, our top priorities.

COVID-19's Effect on Corporate Tax

We are committed to delivering the outstanding service that our clients deserve and have come to expect from DMA. We continue to have open offices where permissible, and in all cases have our dedicated teams equipped to effectively work remotely; while remaining in constant contact with taxing jurisdictions, their teams, and – most importantly – with our clients.

We have the latest in communication technology at our disposal, redundant systems and processes in place, and are monitoring the situation closely each day. We remain fully functional and ready to act on our clients' behalf to protect their interests pertaining to tax mitigation and management. Based on the impact of this crisis to capital markets, corporate productivity, capacity utilization and cash flow, the days ahead may be some of the most critical in recent memory.

Notwithstanding the functional and economic obsolescence created by this global health crisis, there are many immediate questions to answer about current tax administration. We hope you'll find this information useful.

We would not propose to cover here all of the factors that need to be taken into consideration about your future tax assessment valuations or the total impact of the crisis, but we at least want to try and equip you with the best information possible regarding delays or extensions, as they become public.

Due to the fluid and rapidly evolving nature of these events, and the state/local governmental responses thereto, all information should be verified by the taxpayer via the local assessing jurisdiction or state department of revenue.
