He who hesitates is lost (also true for she who hesitates); so the adage goes. In the case of filing your tax return it may result in lost time and money. Are you one of the unprepared Americans who has not yet done anything about your tax return? In 2016, one-fifth of all Americans who filed taxes did so between April 8 and April 22. That’s 29 million individual returns just days before the deadline. Some people delay because they don’t want to make a mistake, others think they like to work under pressure.
Avoid tax procrastination. Take your taxes to Les Merritt soon. Even if you have to file for an extension, you may still save money in the end. The tax laws are not simple and even recently there were changes made to 2017 returns by the recent Budget Bill passed in early February of this year.
Unfortunately, your tax return will not disappear just because you left it in the bottom of a drawer. You still need to file. Working with Les saves you the stress of thinking about an unfinished task. Get your receipts, bills and related tax materials together and set a meeting. If you haven’t gotten everything together so he can file by the April 17 deadline, Les will file an extension for you.
Don’t put this off another day. Call Les Merritt at (919) 269-8553 to schedule your appointment.
