tax timeAll year long, you probably mentally jot down several things you want to discuss with your tax accountant.  But when it comes to tax time, you completely forget everything you had wanted to talk about and the stress starts to kick in that you need to file your taxes.  Fortunately though, there are several last-minute income tax filing tips that you can follow to help you save both time and money.

1) Make an appointment

The first and most important tip to follow is to actually make a date with your tax man.  If you wait and wait, you'll end up finding yourself paying a penalty for not filing on time.  There are extended deadline options, but the sooner you file them, the sooner the stress will be over.

2) Take advantage of free options

If you've been avoiding filing your taxes because you can't afford to go to a trustworthy tax accountant, there's no reason for you to fret.  Instead, you simply need to take advantage of free filing options, including the ones offered online as well as the ones offered in your community.

3) Set up an installment plan

When filing your taxes, if it is found that you will have to pay in, it's important that you do not let this stress you.  Instead, simply pay the IRS what you owe.  If you can't pay it in a lump sum, contact the IRS and ask to be set up on an installment plan.  The IRS is more than willing to create an installment plan that works best for you as this helps boost the odds that you'll actually pay.
