April 17, 2018 was the deadline for 2017 tax returns.
For taxpayers who are receiving a refund, there’s absolutely nothing to worry about! The IRS does not attach penalties to late returns that have refunds. On the other hand, if you had a tax due to the IRS, you must have paid your taxes to the IRS by the tax deadline or you will be subject to penalties.
Read on to find out the steps you need to take in order to file your return.
Don’t wait to e-file your tax return.
Luckily, you have until October 15, 2018; the e-file and extension deadline to continue to file your return to the IRS. After this deadline, you cannot e-file your tax return since it will then become a prior year return. All prior year returns have to be paper-filed. In order to paper file a tax return, you are required to print, sign and mail your tax return to the IRS.
With Prior Tax, you can easily create an account for your tax year, enter your tax information and submit it to us in order to e-file your tax return.
