Have you been putting off filing your tax return this year? Here are a few tips for last-minute filers courtesy of CBS News.
1.) File electronically. For safety, use IRS e-file. It’s easy and will save you time. Plus, you’ll receive your tax return faster if you are expecting one.
2.) Double-check the information before you file. Often times, identification numbers are entered incorrectly. This can delay or reduce a tax refund.
3.) If you’re mailing a return or payment, make sure you have the right address. This can be found at irs.gov under the Individuals tab.
4.) File an extension if you cannot meet the April 17 deadline. Use Form 4868 by April 16 to avoid penalty.
5.) Check out the different payment options provided by the IRS.
