IRS Offers Last Minute Tax Tips

As the April 15th deadline approaches, the IRS is offering tips for getting your tax return filed on time.

IRS Spokesman Mark Green said that even though Monday is the deadline, stay calm because there is still plenty of time.

“Don’t panic,” said Green. “You still have time. There are many options out there.”

Those services include the option of filing electronically for free, even if you owe money.

The IRS Free-file program offers free tax return preparation and free e-filing to individuals who have an Adjusted Gross Income of $57,000 or less.

The IRS also reminds citizens about unclaimed refunds, and that those who have not finished filing their return can request a six-month extension to file.
