Last Minute Tax Help

The tax deadline this year is April 17th. It is fast approaching for people who have not yet started. But it isn't time to panic. If you don't think you will get it done in time then you still have options. You can file a tax extension with the IRS. The easiest way to do that is with free file. This give every tax payer until October 15th the file their taxes. But don't think that you can avoid paying your taxes for an additional six months. All estimated taxes are still due on April 17th.

A second option is to hire an accountant to prepare your tax return. They have the expertise to quickly perform the work. But as with anything the better organized you are the faster it will go. It takes time to sort through a shoe box that is stuffed full of receipts that may or may not be applicable.
