What if I need more time to file my 2017 tax return?

After filing your taxes you might be wondering how long you should keep your tax records and documents. University professors are offering their advice to students on how to file taxes and highlighting the resources available to them. Never sign a blank return or one that is completed in pencil, and remember that you are legally responsible for all information on the form.

The Tax Foundation defines Tax Freedom Day as the date on which USA taxpayers would theoretically have earned enough to pay the year's taxes.

Make sure you are claiming the right tax credits.
