This last-minute blog post is to remind you that it may not be the best idea to file your taxes last-minute. The deadline for taxes is this upcoming Monday, April 15, 2019, which means you only have the weekend to send in everything. Mistakes often rise when rushing to file a tax return, which only creates delays during processing. The best way to avoid mistakes and be accurate in your filing is to file electronically. It is also recommended that taxpayers should file for an extension if necessary. Extensions provide more time to file in order to avoid any penalties for filing late, but it does not provide more time to pay any tax owed.
