You’ve got a month left before the tax deadline — April 17 this year — and have you filed your taxes?
If typical patterns hold, more than one in four of us has yet to sign on the bottom line. IRS numbers show more than 32 million individual income tax returns arrived after April 9 last year.
Preparing your taxes will take you, on average, about 22 hours, according to the IRS.
Naturally you’ve got questions.
Here are the five most common questions that have been put to “Ask a CPA” in the last week. A new app for iPhones and iPads, the app has answers to 2,500 tax-time questions, as well as a way to submit a question to a real-life CPA in your area for free. (Seems like a busy time for CPAs to be doing work pro bono, but founder Michael Rosedale, says they see it as a way to generate potential future customers.)
