IRS Awards Tax Filing Extension for Santa Barbara County

Tax Deadline April 17th

And the turn-around time to get your refund is pretty fast: The IRS issues 9 out of 10 refunds in less than 21 days after a return is filed.

The Lamesa post office has no plans to remain open later than usual on Tuesday, a spokesperson told the Lamesa Press-Reporter on Friday.

Also, if you filed in January or early February and claimed the refundable Earned Income Tax Credit or the Additional Child Tax Credit, the IRS by law was not allowed to start sending that money out until February 15. The post office is closed on Saturday and Sunday. Once your return is filed with the IRS, the information - most notably your Social Security number - is locked and can not be used by anyone who might want to fraudulently claim a tax refund.

To find out how much you have to pay, you can use the payment estimator provided by the IRS on their website.

The IRS said at least half of the potential refunds are for more than $850.

Offshore tax avoidance: A recent emphasis of the IRS, the IRS is continuing to take action against taxpayers that hide money and income offshore. However, they're more than happy to hang on to the money they owe you if you don't. Request an extension by submitting Form 4868, Application for Automatic Extension of Time to File U.S. Individual Income Tax Return, to the IRS by April 17. The standard deduction almost doubles for single filers and married couples who file together thanks to the new tax law, so it may make sense to opt for the standard deduction when preparing your 2018 taxes. About one in five waits until the last two weeks before the deadline to file taxes.

Unbeknownst to most folks, specific items, if found in your return, may trigger an audit. "You should file your tax return on time each year, even if you're not able to pay all the taxes you owe by the due date".

One scam is a robotic voice that uses incorrect English, which calls threatening consumers, telling them that they have a debt with the IRS and will be taken under custody by local authorities. They say they will not initially contact you through email, text, social media or the phone. The result? Itemizing might not be so rewarding next time you file.
