Have you filed your taxes yet? The deadline is Tuesday

News-DemocratApril 14, 2014 

Income tax returns are due Tuesday and extensions can still be filed online for those unable to meet the deadline.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) anticipates receiving 135 million tax returns this year by the filing deadline. The IRS website, www.irs.gov, has multiple links to companies offering free electronic filing of tax returns.

Because most people file electronically, most post offices, including the Belleville Post Office, no longer stay open late on April 15.

The IRS urges taxpayers to file even if they can't pay the full amount due, and those having trouble paying their taxes may qualify for payment plans.

Belleville News-Democrat is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
