The deadline to file your taxes is rapidly approaching.
This year you have until April 17th to file your taxes — or have them postmarked and in the mail.
Even if you aren’t sure your taxes are correct and you need to file for an extension, you need to do it now. And remember, when you file for an extension you still must pay any tax due. Failure to pay your tax due by the filing deadline can lead to penalties and fees in the future when you finally get your taxes sorted out.
I filed my taxes last weekend because I owed some money and didn’t feel like dealing with all of the paperwork until then. What about you?
