    Default Difference in use: Isn`t vs. Doesn`t

    My question is the following one:

    Is there a difference, in reference in which expression is more polite to say:

    considering that she doesn`t handle these claims anymore

    &

    considering that she isnít handling these claims anymore



    Are both correct?? is anyone more polite than the other one?

    Equally polite but the second one is more informal.

    I see no difference in formality either. They carry equal weight and meaning.
