Tax and Money Tip of the Week
October 5, 2011 | No. 63
Don’t Miss the October 17 Deadline
If you need to file a Form 1040 (individual return), the deadline to file is October 17, 2011. This assumes you had filed for an extension prior to April 18, 2011. You also have until October 17, 2011 to fund a SEP-IRA for tax year 2010.
As a reminder, putting your tax returns on extension can be a good thing – but penalties to miss the extension deadline can be steep, up to 25% penalty of taxes owed, so make sure that you make the October 17th deadline.
Give us a call if you need help meeting your deadline.
