How quickly can I get my tax refund? 5 issues to know

Why you should file your taxes as soon as possible

Why you should file your taxes as soon as possible

The Internal Revenue Service said that it successfully started accepting and processing 2017 federal individual income tax returns. Goodwill Financial Programs Manager Jason Haller said it's one of many Volunteer Income Tax Assistance, or VITA, programs in IL that must meet IRS standards. In 2018, taxpayers should lean on their tax filing platform for education and updates on the new tax code to get their maximum refund or reduce the amount owed. It's the method already used most by taxpayers.

The reason this year's deadline falls on the 17th, is because April 15 is a Sunday and the District of Columbia will observe Emancipation Day on April 16. If a taxpayer expects their taxes to go down because of this legislation, do they want that money in their paycheck throughout the year or do they want a big refund when they file their taxes?

Finding out you've been a victim of a tax fraud can be a rude awakening. They come in. They get their taxes done. Residents can also call for tax tips if they have any questions, Hernandez said.

It's tax season in Virginia.

According to the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection, in Wisconsin, tax identity theft was a factor in 75 percent of the identity theft complaints filed in 2016. Surprisingly, those aged 55 and up wait the longest to file their taxes. "I have experienced students that have done it for multiple years supervising them. So that's the motivation: to get your money back".

She said in 2017, cases of tax fraud through stolen identities hit states like Florida, Georgia, and Washington D.C. Particularly hard, but Hiatt saw an increase in cases she dealt with at her San Luis Obispo H&R Block office as well.

TaxSlayer research also indicated that many Americans fear making a mistake or being audited by the IRS.

Taxpayers should be very careful when choosing tax preparers.

"I like helping out a first-time filer", Hernandez said.

This year the deadline to file is April 17 which means you have two extra days to file but getting them in early is always recommended.

It's that time again! "That's how the thieves can make your life a mess with the IRS".

You have a complicated tax situation with dependents, investments, or significant assets or charitable contributions, or you own a business.
