REMINDER: Tax Payments, HSA and IRA contributions for 2017

 TAX RETURNS vs. TAX PAYMENTS:  What is due?

  • Your tax payment is due by April 17th.  Your tax return does not have to be filed by 4/17 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.

** IF YOU OWE TAXES — Your TAX PAYMENT is due by April 17th.  Your filing date can be extended, but not the payment **


EXTENSION PAYMENTS:

If you would like to make a tax payment for April 17th, please contact us ASAP.  We will be happy to help you with this.  If you had a tax review completed by us for 2017, please refer to the notes from that meeting for our instructions on what you will need to do by 4/17.

If you have questions, please email:  darrellynn@mybbd.com.  He can get your questions to your BBD Accountant in Charge.

2017 Extension Payments – myBBDPass

If you owe taxes, you will need to make a payment by 4/17/18 to avoid a late payment penalty.   We can extend the due date of a return, but the extension does not extend the date to pay.  If you think you might owe for your 2017 taxes, please refer to  your 2017 tax review prepared by BBD.

To make a payment for Federal or MN taxes, please follow the instructions below:

FEDERAL EXTENSION PAYMENTS:

Please print the coupon and write a personal check for the amount listed on Line #7 of this form.  The payments should be postmarked and mailed by 4/17/18.  Please use a PERSONAL check for this payment.

The address for the payment is:   Internal Revenue Service, P.O. Box 802503, Cincinnati, OH 45280-2503

For amounts to pay, please refer to your 2017 tax review prepared by BBD.  To avoid any penalties, you would need to make a tax payment by the 4/17/18 deadline.  At this point, we will be filing an extension for your 2017 personal tax return.  However, if you owe tax, you would need to have it paid in by 4/17/18 to avoid any late payment penalty.
