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:
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.
