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 To Do When You Receive Tax Audits or Notices

After your tax return is prepared and if you receive a notice in the mail, we represent clients from pre-filing and administrative processes through audit and administrative appeal. We offer knowledgeable and skillful advocacy on behalf of the client in federal, state and local tax disputes.

Experienced Accountants to Assist You with Your Tax Audits and Notices

After reviewing any notices you received whether it be from the IRS, state or local agencies we can get a power of attorney to further assist you. With a power of attorney we can request and receive tax transcripts that can help assist us in resolving your tax notices.

Power of Attorney

Use Form 2848 to authorize an individual to represent you before the IRS. The individual you authorize must be a person eligible to practice before the IRS. Your authorization of a qualifying representative will also allow that individual to receive and inspect your confidential tax information.

Letter to the Taxing Agency with Supporting Documents and Tax Forms

After obtaining all the necessary information from the taxing agencies with the Power of Attorney and the taxpayer we will write a response to the taxing agency with all necessary documents and tax forms to resolve the tax notice

Some notices we have resolved in the past:

  • Partnership penalties
  • HSA distribution
  • Payroll tax
  • Credit denial
  • Unreported Income

Amended Returns (1040X) Federal and State

If applicable, an amended return can be an option. An amended return is a return filed in order to make corrections to a tax return from a previous year. An amended return can be used to correct errors and claim a more advantageous tax filing. For example, one might choose to file an amended return in instances of misreported earnings or tax credits.
