Last-Minute Tax Filing Tips for 2011


Web Extra Tips

Don't wait until the last day to file your tax return. This could lead to more errors and missed deductions. If you do not think you can file your tax return by April 18 then consider an extension or an installment plan. You can find more information about these two options on the IRS website.

If you haven't already, contribute to your Individual Retirement Account (IRA) by April 18 and you may be able to deduct your contribution from your taxes.

Do not forget to sign your tax return, and if you are filing jointly with your spouse, then both of you must sign your return. Not signing your return makes it invalid, which will delay your refund.
