NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -- Tax season has been extended. The Trump administration pushed the deadline to July 15th due to the coronavirus.  

That’s creating change for the people who help file taxes, like Jim Lundy, a CPA and partner at Marcum LLP.
 
“It’s still going to be difficult, but at least it gave us a chance,” Lundy said. “Because we were pretty well freaked out about how we were going to get this done.”
 
Lundy tells us they extended tax season so people can either get their refund sooner or keep the money they owe for a few more months.
 
Lundy says their team is working remotely. So, he has a message to his clients and anyone who’s filing their taxes at the moment.
 
“The key is going to be to get your information together, get it in as soon as you can, communicate,” he said. 
 
And if you have the choice, he says do not wait until the last minute to file.
 
“If everybody waits and brings it to us in July, we’re gonna have a pretty bad summer,” he said. “So, I’d like to go ahead and get it done, get them their refunds going. If they owe money, at least know how much it is and they can plan for that.”
