During this national health crisis, the health and safety of our clients, employees, and community is our primary concern. We, at Ward, Schmerbeck, & Billig, CPA’s are taking this situation extremely seriously. We have taken several actions based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control to help protect the well-being of our clients, employees, and community. Please do not hesitate to call us at 585-720-9970 or email us at with any questions or concerns.

  • You are welcome to drop your tax information off at our office during our regular business hours, or you send them in either by mail or in a secure digital format. If you have any questions about how to best provide us with your tax documents, please call or email our office.
  • If you would like to discuss your taxes prior to having them prepared, or have questions for Brian, Bill, or Leighann, we ask that you schedule a phone call with them rather than an in-person meeting, and they will answer your questions with the same level of attention and service that you’re accustomed to receiving in our office.
  • When your tax returns are completed, we will mail them to you, along with your original documents, rather than have you come pick them up at our office. Your completed tax returns will include detailed instructions to sign and return the required e-file authorization forms and how to pay your federal and state taxes, if required. When you receive your completed tax returns, if you have questions and would like to review them with your tax preparer, please call or email our office to schedule a phone call with Brian, Bill, or Leighann.

Although our offices remain open, we are encouraging our clients to follow the protocols outlined above for this tax filing season. We appreciate your trust in our firm and want to assure you that we will continue to provide you with the same level of professional service that you have come to expect of us. We wish you all good health, and we appreciate your patience and understanding during this challenging time.
