US Tax Deadline April 17

Filing federal income taxes is something that a lot of people put off until the last minute. Because Apr. 15 fell on a Sunday this year, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) gave US citizens an extra day to get all their paperwork together and their taxes filed. Instead of being due today, Apr. 16, they’re not due until Tuesday, Apr. 17.

This is the digital era, so, of course, the IRS is recommending that people file their taxes electronically rather than filling out and sending in paper returns. With helpful software like TurboTax and H&R Block, filling out tax returns correctly is a lot easier. For those who get refunds, the money arrives a lot faster, and thanks to direct deposit, with a lot less hassle. If you want or need someone else to do your taxes, then H&R Block and many other tax preparation businesses can electronically file your taxes for you.

Those who have to pay taxes have a choice of three payment methods:

If you decide to pay your taxes with a check or money order, the IRS instructs you to do the following:

  • Make the payment out to the “United States Treasury.”
  • Write “2011 Form 1040,” name, address, daytime phone number and Social Security number on the front of the check or money order.
  • To ensure that the payment is credited promptly, also enclose a Form 1040-V payment voucher.

Anyone who can’t pay the required amount has a few options available to him that can be found on the IRS website here.

Filing taxes is never fun, especially if you have to pay. Fortunately, those who like to wait until the last minute got a two-day reprieve this year.
