Last minute filers are mailing their returns according to the US Postal Service.
Taxes must be postmarked by April 15th. Most post office locations close by 5:00pm but some locations will stay open late on tax day.
At H&R Block, tax preparers like Cheryl Bacon are still meeting with customers.
"Do a lot of people file extensions to file? When is the deadline to do that?"
Turns out that if you don't owe a tax refund and you don't file on time, you won't get hit with a penalty but if you do owe, you'll pay a fine for filing late. These penalties will grow for each month after the deadline that you are late.
If you owe money, consider adjusting your withholding amount on your W-4. You don't have to follow the sheet. Do a 1 or a 0. After a return is filed, it usually takes the IRS 5-7 weeks to deposit your check or issue a tax refund.
A reminder, identity theft is on the rise. All it takes is a social security number, a birth date, and a name. Thieves are using that information to file thousands in bogus tax returns. Contact the IRS Identity Protection Unit, toll free at 1-800-908-4490.
