The Countdown to Tax Time!

(WBRE/WYOU-TV) A week from tomorrow (April 17th) is one of the most dreaded days in American life!? the deadline to pay your taxes.   And from all indications, millions of us are, in fact, putting off the inevitable.  Details from NBC's Chris Clackum.

It's almost too late to advise you to not wait until the last minute to do your taxes... Because the last minute's almost here.

But tax experts say ...Be extra cautious between now and the filing deadline midnight next Tuesday.

 
"You do need to be careful...I mean.. At the last minute, people tend to rush around. So, you just want to make sure have all your documents in one place so you don't miss anything"  said Lisa Greene-Lewis, CPA Turbo Tax

Especially deductions you're entitled to like an IRA contribution.. that can even be made by right now.

 
"Yes...There's still time to contribute to your ira and reduce your liability on your 2017 taxes" 

Lisa Greene-Lewis with Turbo Tax...says to also remember that even if you ask for an extension, whatever taxes you owe for 2017...Are still due by midnight next Tuesday.

 
"An extension to file is not an extension to pay. So, you need to pay your tax liability by the tax deadline"   noted Greene-Lewis

Although, time's running out...It's still possible to be early with a last-minute tax filing if you file by this weekend.
