Triggering a Tax Audit from the IRS

Share

You've got until Tuesday to file and pay your taxes without facing a penalty.

The Lamesa post office has no plans to remain open later than usual on Tuesday, a spokesperson told the Lamesa Press-Reporter on Friday.

When is the last day to file taxes in 2018? The post office is closed on Saturday and Sunday.

For those among us who have put off filing out their tax returns until the last possible moment - a moment that's fast approaching - there's both good news and bad this year. The longer you wait to file, the longer it will take to get your tax refund. In these, scammers pose as IRS agents and pressure victims by demanding Money or threatening jail time. You can do much smarter things with that money, like putting it into a retirement plan or a college savings fund or maybe paying down outstanding debt or replenishing your emergency reserve fund.

But filing your taxes is something that Cauble recommends you do before the state and federal deadline this week. "You should file your tax return on time each year, even if you're not able to pay all the taxes you owe by the due date".

"Unemployment is taxable, and if they're married, their spouse may have taxable income as well, so they do not need to just ignore filing", Cauble said. If you can file your taxes on time, you should. Mark Jaeger, director of tax development at TaxAct, said that some taxpayers are shareholders or partners in a business and are still waiting to receive their Schedule K-1 form.

Officials are reminding people if the IRS does need to contact you, they will do it through a letter. The bottom line? If you think you owe, file an extension as a way to avoid the late-filing penalty.

It may sound basic, but keeping all your tax documents in one place, including your W-2 and all applicable interest statements and receipts, is key to making sure you get all the deductions you are eligible for, said Chris Mann, a Bloomfield Hills, Mich. -based tax attorney.
