Tax DayWelcome to Taffe Tax’s blog#33 We’re a tax preparation firm located in Catonsville, MD. We’ve been providing tax services to individuals and small businesses for over a decade in the Baltimore Metro area. We thought we’d focus on last minute tax tips today. Tax Day is here and for some reason or another, you haven’t filed your taxes yet. Don’t worry; it happens to all of us.  Here are some quick tips to fix this situation.

File an Extension

Hey, it happens. We’re all busy and this tax season got away from you. Fortunately, the IRS knows this. They’ve supplied the public with a form to assist in this matter. Simply follow the link below to a form that will allow you to extend the personal deadline for up to six months. After this, you will need to finish your taxes. It’s worth noting here that you need to file this form TODAY.

E-File

This is a great option. You have until midnight tonight to get this done. Essentially, you fill out the paperwork online and transmit it electronically to the IRS. Some people are leery of putting this information on the web, but the truth is that with today’s encryption standards, there is no need to worry.  It will not be posted for everyone to see. It goes straight to the IRS from your computer.

Use Direct Deposit

This option is perfect for anyone, regardless of when you file. It’s rather self explanatory. The money is directly deposited into your bank account. This allows for you to get your refund in a matter of days, not weeks. This option will be available when you file your taxes.

That’s all for now. Thanks for checking out our blog. If you have questions for our tax professionals or have a topic you’d like us to investigate, feel free to email us. Now get out there and file those taxes!
