Deadline for filing tax returns is Tuesday this year

"Thanks to an extensive review by our Account Processing staff during the tax offseason, we have dramatically improved processing operations for the 2017 tax season, allowing us to return tax refund processing times to their historical average, while continuing to fortify security protocols".

Set aside cash for interest. If the amount you owe is large you can arrange to make monthly payments until the balance is paid off.

IRS Free File, available only through IRS.gov/FreeFile, will be available through Monday, Oct. 16, 2017.

This is the easy part.

If you do not have all the information to file a complete and accurate return by April 18, extend your tax return. But the work doesn't end there.

Turbo Tax, H&R Block, and other big box preparers have do it-yourself apps to help you file. That doesn't delay your tax bill. It is important to note that the filing of this form with the IRS serves as an extension for your Federal, State of OH, and most local tax returns. They're still due on April 18, so submit an estimated tax payment with form 4868. The maximum penalty is 25%. Tuesday night, one minute before midnight, is the deadline to file income tax returns.

Free college in NY and how it will work
That would cover about 25,000 students who attend a 4 year school... but an estimated 200,000 students would be eligible . I was proud to put this plan forward during my campaign, and I'm thrilled that it's become a reality in NY .

Tax service centers are keeping their doors open later this time of year, ready for customers to file their 2016 income tax. The IRS toll-free telephone line, 800-829-1040, will be available Saturday, April 15, from 9 a.m.to 5 p.m. (callers' local time). Don't miss your deadline!

Don't waste those three extra days. If so, you're among the 70 percent of US taxpayers who are receiving a refund this year. If you use tax preparation software, the program will do the math for you.

"Some people, such as students and part-time workers, may not have filed because they had too little income to require them to file a tax return", the release said.

Also, you don't need to wait until October to file the return.

It is also possible that your professional preparer may not have time to completely prepare your tax returns by the deadline if you have not yet given them your information. You will receive a confirmation when your e-filed extension is approved, but with a paper filing, you are only notified if the extension is rejected.

Use IRS Free File: Taxpayers who made $64,000 or less can use free tax software to prepare their federal tax return. Modify your filing and tracking system so that next year it consists of more than a shoebox full of wadded-up receipts. You can pay by check or money order, debit or credit card, electronic funds transfer, or, new this year, by cash at a participating 7-Eleven store in one of 34 states. You don't have to give a reason, and the vast majority of automatic extension requests are granted.
