As the dreaded April 15th tax deadline approaches, here are a few reminders.
TAX RETURNS vs. TAX PAYMENTS – What is due?
Your tax payment is due by April 15th. Your tax return does not have to be filed by 4/15 as long as we have filed an extension.
If we have prepared your taxes in the past, and your taxes are not complete – rest assured, we have filed an extension for you, you do not need to do anything, or sign anything.
