Tax Day 2016 Freebies

This year, most of us get three extra days to file our federal income tax. Since Emancipation Day falls on April 15, Tax Day 2016 has been pushed back to April 18, except if you live in Massachusetts and Maine where you’ll be celebrating Patriots’ Day that Monday; you have until Tuesday, April 19 to file.  

The IRS will never call to verify your tax return

The IRS is getting new reports of people calling and pretending they are verifying your tax return information over the phone. The scam artist then gets personal information like Social Security numbers, as well as bank and credit card account numbers.
