Taxpayers wait until the last minute to file their federal income tax returns. Tax returns must be submitted by April 15th, but this year, you get a couple of days extra with the deadline being April 17th. That’s because April 15th falls on a Sunday, but since the following Monday is Emancipation Day – a Washington, D.C., holiday, filers get until April 17th to get their returns over to the IRS.
Here are 5 reasons to file your taxes early:
- Faster tax refunds You’ll get your money sooner.
- You’ll give yourself more time to address an underpayment.
- You can avoid tax fraud.
- That’s real, you want to lower your stress level deadline stress.
