Still haven't filed your taxes yet? Deadline is Tuesday


The IRS typically sends out refunds within 21 days of receiving tax returns, but in some cases it can take as long as eight weeks. "Neither are good options", Agel said.

As of April 6, the IRS had received 103.7 million individual tax returns, just slightly ahead of previous year.

"So, certainly if you get a call that you feel suspicious just say ok, I'll reach back to you, hang up and dial the IRS directly". About a million people didn't file a return in 2014 and are owed money, according to the IRS.

Failure to file will hurt: The IRS will assess a penalty of 5 percent of the balance due for each month your return is late, up to a maximum of 25 percent.

This is our past year ever filing under this ridiculous, complicated, punitive tax code. Perhaps best of all for everyone who dreads the days (or even weeks) it takes to file their taxes, this is the past year we will ever have to file under the old tax code. So, while it might be too much to ask people be happy filing their taxes this year, we can at least be happy knowing we will never have to file under this tax code again.

"The bulk of these deals are only offered on the official day, April 17, but a few deals started early and some extend past Tuesday", Yarbrough said.

Many businesses around the country are offering rewards to tired taxpayers.

Individuals can file an extension easily.

To be considered timely, your taxes must be postmarked by the U.S. Postal Service by 11:59 p.m. The federal extension must include an estimated payment if you are likely to owe taxes.

Waiting until the last minute to pay your taxes can cost you if you are expecting a refund since the government hangs on to your money and receives more interest on it. Or, for electronically-filed returns, they will prepare it but won't digitally sign it as the paid preparer. On the form you indicate your regular RRSP contributions and other deductions and credits to be taken into account when your employer calculates the tax that will be withheld from your pay.
