NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH)– Don’t say we didn’t warn you. Tuesday is the last day to file your taxes.
Procrastinators, this is the last day to pay Uncle Sam. You can file an extension but no matter what Tuesday you have to pay what you owe.
News 8 was at the post office Tuesday, but many of you were not. Last year, 9% of tax returns were mailed and 91% were e-filed.
“This has been gradually happening over the years and I know you all remember the crazy party-like atmosphere we would actually have at midnight, but now it’s just like any other day,” said USPS spokesperson Christine Dugas.
So if you plan on filing today, here are some reminders.
1) Proof read.
2) Break out the calculator and check your math.
3) Make sure your social-security number is right.
4) Verify your bank account info.
5) Sign and date your tax return.
Click “Refunds” at the top of the page, then click “Where’s my refund”?
or download the IRS2GO app.
Don’t pick up the phone and call, the IRS says the same information is online and probably easier and faster to find. The IRS says 90% of people get refunds in less than three weeks. So if it’s been longer, you may want to contact the IRS.
