Filed an extension for filing your Tax Returns back in April? Taxes are due tomorrow! Still working on your Tax Return? Get with it and get the thing done! Taxes are due Wednesday of next week. To kick off the last week before taxes are due, I'm offering some Last-Second Tax Filing Tips. Get to work, procrastinators!
Tips for Last-Second Tax Filers All the Tax Filing Help you need
1. Double-Check everything
Particularly if you’re filing a paper return, it’s important to double check all of your figures to make sure your calculations are correct.
2. Mailing to the Right Place
Your tax package should include a coded envelope for mailing your return. If it doesn’t, check a section called “Where Do You File?” in the tax instruction booklet.
3. Sign Your Form
I know you must be tired of reading this, but it’s an easy step that so many taxpayers forget. If you’re filing jointly, you and your spouse must sign. Additionally, anyone paid to prepare your return must sign the form as well.
4. Electronic Filing
Filing electronically is a quick option. If you choose direct deposit, your refund could be deposited in as little as 10 days. However, you still have to double check your electronic form to make sure everything is filed correctly. You cannot blame tax filing software for any errors that may occur!
5. Hire a Professional
Let’s face it; you’re almost out of time. At this point, hiring a Tax Professional is a wise investment. A Tax Resolution company or reputable CPA can handle complicated returns with ease, keeping you out of trouble with the IRS.
