That feels like an odd statement. But gosh, it’s been an odd year.

Earlier this year, the United States Tax Court announced that it would be following recommended guidelines provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention with respect to the COVID-19 Virus.

As the virus spring, the Tax Court continued to limit service and availability to keep taxpayers and employees safe, including holding mail while the Tax Court building is closed.

Now, things are changing again: effective July 10, 2020, the United States Tax Court will resume receiving
mail. Any items currently being held by the United States Postal Service or any private delivery service (such as FedEx, UPS, and DHL) will be delivered to the Court on that day.

That doesn’t mean that the Tax Court is opening. The building remains closed to the public, and until further notice, documents may not be hand-delivered.

Despite mail deliveries, copy requests by non-parties will continue to be fulfilled electronically by email. The Records Department can be reached at (202) 521-4688.

You can find updates on the Court’s website. If you have any questions, contact the Public Affairs Office at (202) 521-
