Filing Taxes At The Last Minute

Tools

By KMVT News

Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV ) April 15th is the deadline for filing your taxes across the nation.

Many Americans file their taxes weeks or even months in advance.

But there are always those who wait until the last minute.

And if you are one of those who wait till the very end... Mailing your returns through the U.S. Postal Service could mean a late penalty even if you send it off on the 15th.

If you go through the drive-up drop-off box at the Post Office on tax day, it may not meet that all important cancellation mark.

Mail in Twin Falls and the Magic Valley is picked up and trucked to Boise for sorting, meaning your returns may not get the cancellation until the next day... Meaning you may have a potential penalty.

It's suggested that if you do wait until the last day, that you should send it certified so that you have a receipt.
