Tax Season Resources


The tax filing deadline is fast approaching. This year, tax season is three days longer. Federal taxes are due by April 18th, 2011, because April 15th is Emancipation Day in Washington, D.C.

Here are a few resources we've blogged about in the past to help you file your taxes:

  • Utah residents who make less than $49,000 per year qualify for tax preparation assistance from Utah's Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program. Search for a site near you online or call 211 to schedule an appointment.
  • Those 60 and over can use AARP's Tax-Aide program, which is available at libraries and senior centers throughout the state.

The IRS has several online resources for individuals and businesses who are preparing their own taxes. One of these is an Interactive Tax Assistant tool, which features frequently asked questions about tax preparation topics like credits and deductions. When you choose a question, the program interviews you for a short time (5 to 15 minutes), and then provides an answer.

The IRS has a video portal featuring presentations on a variety of topics for individuals and businesses, such as home office deductions or earned income tax credits. Written transcripts are below the video presentations.
