Procrastinated on filing your taxes? Here's a list of Utah post office collection times on Tax Day

The biggest mistake people can make, he said, is deciding that not filing is a better alternative than facing a tax bill.

As of April 6, the IRS had received 103.7 million individual tax returns, just slightly ahead of a year ago. You'll need to enter your Social Security number, your filing status and the refund amount you put on your return.

Scammers claiming to work for the IRS are getting more advanced, calling vulnerable individuals, asking for specific personal information.

Get your Refund Fast and File your Taxes for Free.

This is the last time taxpayers will file under the former tax code.

If a taxpayer can not complete their tax return by the filing deadline, they may apply for a filing extension with DOR or the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

Time is running out to file your taxes without being penalized. Perhaps best of all for everyone who dreads the days (or even weeks) it takes to file their taxes, this is the previous year we will ever have to file under the old tax code.

Lisa Greene-Lewis, CPA at TurboTax, said the most important tip for entering information is to take your time.

"The bulk of these deals are only offered on the official day, April 17, but a few deals started early and some extend past Tuesday", Yarbrough said.

Sharpe continued, "If they file an extension it does eliminate some penalties but not everything".

Noodles & Co. will offer $4 off orders of $10 or more through Wednesday. Free File Fillable Forms means there is a free option for everyone.

The Form 4868 may also be filed with a professional tax preparer, or tax software.

McDonald's is offering special Tax Day deals at participating restaurants in select locations. Other post office locations are open only for dropping off tax returns, packages, and any other mail.

If you're waiting until the absolute last moment to file your taxes, Houser says you're not alone as they are helping almost two hundred clients today.

One more thing, if you're still owed a refund from your 2014 taxes today marks your last chance to file and still get that money back. "You will either owe money, be do a refund or be totally even". Extensions are available to push the deadline to October 15, but that does not excuse the need to make a payment if one is required.
