In a notice posted to its website, the Tax Court has announced two precautions that it will be taking, effective March 9, with respect to the Coronavirus.
The Court said that it would like to assure the public that it is following recommended guidelines provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
As a result:
- Effective March 9, 2020, and until further notice, out of an abundance of caution, the Court is encouraging social distancing and, therefore, will limit the number of people in the courtroom at any one time.
- Anyone who is required to appear in Court and is experiencing any flu-like symptoms, has a fever, or is coughing or sneezing, should contact the Court before appearing. The Court will make reasonable accommodations and reschedule appearances, hearings, and trials as needed.
