Tax time is not the time for procrastination. Whether you’re filing a simple form or itemizing your deductions, now is the time to start organizing receipts and tax-related documents.
Early preparation can save you unnecessary penalties and fines and help beat the last-minute rush to tax preparers. If you’re unable to file your taxes before the April 15 deadline, file for an extension.
If you’re filing your taxes online, use a secure internet connection and avoid public Wi-Fi, such as those in coffee shops. Choose a secure password that’s a combination of letters, numbers and special symbols.
