Did you file an extension back in April so you could have more time to file your taxes? Well guess what – your due date is coming up next week. October 15th is the tax extension deadline, so be sure to file your taxes so you don’t get in any trouble with the IRS. While I have always filed and paid my taxes in April, when most people do, I have friends who file an extension every single year. There is nothing wrong with doing so, but you have to remember to file by October 15th so you don’t get in hot water with the government! My brother does my taxes for me, as he is a CPA, but you can either do them yourself or use a service like TurboTax – but either way, make sure you get them in by the 15th of October!
