Spina & Company, PLLC Property Management- Tenants

UPDATE 3/23/20

Although your April Rent is still due April 1st, 2020, we acknowledge that our tenants may be experiencing difficult financial times amid the Covid-19 pandemic. As a remedy, we have decided to waive all late fees and absorb costs for E Check ACH transfers of $1/check and Credit/Debit Card payments of 3% of total rent.

Additionally, if you need an alternate payment schedule please contact property managers, Joseph Bernstein at jbernstein@spinacpa.com or Sameer Ahmed at Sameer@spinacpa.com as soon as possible. Please be advised that communication is still expected for any late payments of rent for April and moving forward.

A Message From Joseph Bernstein, Property Manager

As all of you are aware, our public health situation is rapidly changing. Yesterday, the Governor of Pennsylvania Tom Wolf, required all "non-life sustaining businesses" to fully close. As much as we would like to believe our services are essential, Spina & Company, falls under the list of "non-life sustaining businesses" and must wind down operations immediately.

This means we will not be able to attend to routine or non-routine maintenance. We will be checking emails from home and doing our best to return your calls. We could offer over the phone advice, including virtual assistance for basic issues (leaking sink/ clogged sink drain).

On clogs, we know some people do not have access to toilet paper because other people have hoarded it. This is a sad situation. Under no circumstances should you be flushing ANYTHING (paper towels, tampons, "flushable" wipes, napkins, tissues) besides toilet paper down the drain. These DO CAUSE clogs. We want you to be able to avoid clogs at all cost as we may not be able to unclog it for you.

Should there be a fire- call 911 and then the office line. Should there be a flood that is life threatening - call 911 followed by the office. 

In regards to payment of April 2020's rent, we will be emailing you the invoice for the April's rent and this will take you to a screen where you can either enter your banking information to pay by check or your credit card information.

The current situation is fluid for all of us. We are taking things day by day. We hope to be able to resume normal business operations and services as soon as we are allowed to.

What Are Estimated Taxes?

Estimated tax is a method of paying tax on income that is not subject to withholding tax. This can include income from self-employment, business earnings, interest, rent, dividends and other sources. The IRS requires estimated tax to be paid quarterly, typically in 4 equal installments. If you underpay your estimated tax, you will have to write a bigger check to the IRS when you file your tax return. If you overpay your estimated tax, you will receive the excess amount as a tax refund At Spina and Company we will calculate and provide estimated quarterly tax estimate coupons for you to easily pay and mail. We also provide quarterly email reminders to pay.

Estimated taxes are due generally following the below schedule:

  • January 1 – March 31: Deadline is April 15
  • April 1 – May 31: Deadline is June 16
  • June 1 – August 31: Deadline is September 15
  • September 1 – December 31: Deadline is January 15 (of the following year)

Tax Extensions

If you miss the tax deadline, it is in your best interest to file an extension and then file your tax return as soon as possible thereafter to avoid major fines and penalties.

Partnership penalties for failure to file an extension are extensive. A partnership return on Form 1065 is required even though the partnership has no taxable income. A penalty of $195 per partner per month is imposed on the partnership for failure to file a timely or complete Form 1065 (a maximum of 12 months’ penalty).

File an Extension for Individual or for your business with Spina & Company to avoid significant interest and penalties. By filing an extension you can have flexibility to file after the tax return deadline, for up to 6 months.
