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 **
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: email@example.com. He can get your questions to your BBD Accountant in Charge.
