Good News, You Don't Have to File Your Taxes!

Actually...you DO have to file and pay your taxes. Sorry for the little April Fools gag, but there's no escaping your tax obligations. You have less than 15 days, the clock is ticking.

April 15, TAXES DUE!!!!

Here's the drill...

Individuals: Form 1040, 1040A, or 1040EZ. Pay the first installment of 2009 estimated tax.

Partnerships: Form 1065 for 2008; give copy of Sch. K-1 to each partner.

Electing Large Partnerships: File a 2008 calendar year return.

For Household Employers: File Schedule H if you paid $1,500 or more to a household employee. Deadline to make corrective refunds in excess of prior year's elective deferral limit.

Corporations: Deposit the first installment of your estimated tax for 2009.

Small Business IRS Tip: Deposit Payroll tax for March if the monthly deposit rule applies. Deposit Payroll tax for payments on April 8-10 if the semiweekly deposit rule applies.
