A Message from the Capstan Team


Dear Clients, Colleagues, and Friends, 

It feels like everything has changed.  Work is different, school is different, life is different.

We want to assure you that while so many things are different, our dedication to your success is still the same.

Our first priority is the health and safety of every link in the “Capstan chain,” and we are taking every precaution to protect the health of the Capstan crew, the CPAs, the clients, the tenants, the points of contact, and everyone in between.

Our commitment to your safety is paramount, but we are committed to your success as well, and we are striving to continue to meet your needs in this difficult time.   We are still crafting comprehensive tax strategies, still producing meticulous reports, and still maximizing our clients’ tax savings.

In fact, as quarantine-related restrictions begin to lift, we are closely monitoring the situation and are preparing to resume non-remote operations as soon and as safely as possible.

Many team members will continue telecommuting, and in-office staff will comply with all prescribed procedures.

On the road, engineers will consciously minimize risk by meeting and exceeding all federal, state, and municipal precautions, wearing protective equipment, and carefully selecting modes of travel.  We are also exploring creative alternatives to traditional site visits that may be employed when appropriate.

Things are different.  But the Capstan experience has not and will not change.  You can continue to rely on us as your trusted partner in these uncertain times, and we are honored to have earned that trust.

The last two months have given all of us a chance to reflect on what is really “essential” in life.  We truly hope that you and yours are safe and well.
