Tips for Taxpayers Who Missed the Tax Deadline

Call me for help at 734.332.9949. Here are tips for you:

If you missed the April 15 tax filing deadline, don’t panic. Here’s some advice from the IRS.
File as soon as you can. If you owe taxes, you should file and pay as soon as you can. This will help minimize the interest and penalty charges. There is no penalty for filing a late return if you are due a refund.

Pay as much as you can. If you owe tax but can’t pay it all at once, try to pay as much as you can when you file your tax return. Pay the remaining balance as soon as possible to stop further penalties and interest.

I can help you make payment. If you need more time to pay your taxes, I can help you apply for a payment plan with the IRS.

A refund may be waiting. If you’re due a refund, we should file your return as soon as possible to get it. Even if you are not required to file, you may still get a refund. This could apply if you had taxes withheld from your wages or you qualify for certain tax credits. If you don’t file your return within three years, you could forfeit your right to the refund.
