Tax Day 2019 is last chance to file or request extension

News

If you have already filed your federal income taxes you may be wondering why your refund seems smaller than normal.

“Less taxes came out of people’s paychecks due to the federal withholding tables changing in February of last year, said Candina Abrams Kent with H&R Block. “So February through December you got more in your paycheck and less as a refund. So if people want more of a refund because that’s their stronghold […] we have tax planing. They can come in, we can help them adjust their W-4 and get that refund back up to where it was.”

April15th is always one of the busiest days for the post office across the United States, as individual tax returns are due to be filed online or postmarked before midnight. If you miss the deadline you could end up owing more money due to fees and interest. One important point to remember, is that paying and filing are not the same thing.
