Have You Filed Yet?

Remember your tax filing is due by April 17th this year.  The last day the AARP volunteers will be at the library to help seniors and low income filers is Friday, April 13th from 10:00 until 3:00.

Some last minute tips from include:

  • The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) website is the easy place to go for the latest official news and information on filing your taxes. Find the forms you need, appeal a dispute, or get an electronic filing PIN.
  • Does filing make you nervous or apprehensive? To help clarify what is expected of you, check out this list of 10 Things you Should Know About Making Federal Payments. It quickly explains how to pay, what information you need to include, and how to file online.
  • Do you know you just won’t be able to make the filing deadline? You may be eligible for an extension. To be granted an additional six months to file, you will need to submit Form 4868 by the April 17th due date. Remember that you’ll still have to make an estimated payment by April 17th of the amount you owe.
  • If you’ve already filed, you may be looking forward a refund. Wondering when you can expect it? Check its status online or use the phone app.
