If you requested an extension for filing your 2018 tax return, the IRS reminds us your deadline is close, Tuesday, October 15, 2019.

AcctServices.org wants to remind you there is still time for taxpayers to file a complete – and hopefully accurate – return.  The deadline doesn’t mean you should wait until October 15 to file.  IRS says when you have your tax return ready, file it. 

It goes without saying, if you did not request an extension, but have yet to file a 2018 tax return, file it as soon as you have it ready.  Additional penalties and interest will keep being added, so sooner is better.

You can file your return for free, electronically through IRS Free File.  This option is available through October 15, 2019. Other options that include using a free tax return:  Preparation site, commercial software or an authorized e-file provider.
