THE FEDERAL TAX FILING DEADLINE IS NOW ONE WEEK AWAY. I-R-S SPOKESMAN, CHRISTOPHER MILLER, SAYS YOU WILL GET A FEW EXTRA DAYS TO FILE.

TAXTIP1 OC….HOLIDAY :13

THAT MOVES THE DEADLINE TO THE NEXT BUSINESS DAY — WHICH IS THE 18TH. MILLER SAYS EVERYTHING APPEARS TO BE GOING WELL AS THE DEADLINE APPROACHES.

TAXTIP2 OC….THIS YEAR :24

HE DID NOT HAVE A COUNT ON HOW MANY FEDERAL RETURNS FROM IOWA HAVE ALREADY BEEN FILED. IF YOU ARE NOT GOING TO MEET THE DEADLINE — THEN THERE IS AN ACTION YOU SHOULD TAKE.

TAXTIP3 OC….THE I-R-S :15

THE EXTENSION WILL YOU GET UNTIL OCTOBER 17TH TO FILE.

TAXTIP4 OC….DEADLINE :22

MILLER SAYS FAILING TO PAY BY THE DEADLINE CAN LEAD TO PENALTIES AND INTEREST.

HE SAYS THE I-R-S ENCOURAGES YOU TO FILE ELECTRONICALLY AND USE DIRECT DEPOSIT FOR THE REFUNDS BECAUSE YOUR ELECTRONICALLY FILED RETURNS ARE MUCH MORE ACCURATE THAN A PAPER RETURN. AND PAPER RETURNS WILL BE DELAYED IN PROCESSING AND IN ISSUING A REFUND.
