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.
