Waiting until the last minute again huh? Yeah...us too. Here are some quick last minute tax tips to hopefully lessen the stress.
1. Go online! You can file fast and don't have to wait in long post office lines. Plus, you can find all the software you need there too. Think E-file with direct deposit. You could have your money back in less than two weeks.
2. Don't work so fast that you forget to get your deductions. It's your money... make sure you get it back. Loko for charity receipts, education credits, job search expenses. A few minutes now can mean some major money back to you.
3. While we all double check our numbers... because we don't want to fudge anything on our returns... (right?) make triple sure you have all social security numbers correct. This could cause MAJOR PROBLEMS.
4. Still can't get it done? Don't panic. Filing a six month extension is easy. Just don't put everything off if you do get that extension. Finish your taxes and get it off your to do list.
