Phone:  1-800-222-5377 

INFORMATION FROM THE IRS: Individuals: Income tax payment deadlines for individual returns, with a due date of April 15, 2020, are being automatically extended until July 15, 2020, for up to $1 million of their 2019 tax due. This payment relief applies to all individual returns, including self-employed individuals, and all entities other than C-Corporations, such as trusts or estates. IRS will automatically provide this relief to taxpayers. Taxpayers do not need to file any additional forms or call the IRS to qualify for this relief.

Information Only,

Governor Wolf confirmed the first two presumptive positive cases of 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) in Pennsylvania. One is an adult individual from Wayne County who recently travelled to a country where COVID-19 is present, and the other is an adult individual from Delaware County who recently traveled to an area of the United States where COVID-19 is present. Both individuals are in their homes in isolation. Following the announcement, the Governor signed an emergency disaster declaration to provide increased support to state agencies involved in the response to the virus. As the commonwealth continues it preparation and response efforts, we want to ensure that you have the most up to date information and resources to protect your employees and the older adults you serve.

 

With that said, the most accurate and timely information regarding this outbreak is available through the Department of Health’s (DOH) Coronavirus Webpage as well the CDC’s website and social media channels. DOH is continuing to update their Coronavirus Webpage with any new information and guidance for the public. There are multiple resources on the page including a FAQ, fact sheets, infographics, information for travelers, businesses, and healthcare professionals and facilities. In addition to DOH’s website, they will also post any updates on their Facebook and Twitter pages. The following CDC link also contains resources that provide information focused on a variety of situations, including home, work, large community events/mass gatherings, healthcare settings and first responders: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/index.html

APPRISE INFORMATION

In an effort to reduce exposure to the risk of COVID-19 all previously scheduled APPRISE appointments will be changed to telephone appointments. A Counselor will call you at the date & time arranged. New callers, please leave a message including your name, phone number and a brief reason for your call. Your call will be returned as soon as possible.

The Pike County APPRISE Program thanks you for your patience and cooperation while we work through these challenges together.

Thank you so much,
The APPRISE Coordinator Chris
