Tax Deadline Tuesday

Posted: Updated:
BOZEMAN -

You have until Tuesday to get your taxes filed with the IRS.

Many tax accountants were busy on Monday finishing up last minute returns.

They said the best thing you could do is get your taxes done early, but if you wait until now, you are best off filing an extension with the IRS.

Accountants also said that the fastest way to get your return is by filling online and doing direct deposit.

 "We always encourage people to file electronically. That helps cut down on math errors," said Mike Henry, who is an accountant with Anderson-Zurmehlen.  "And if you do direct deposit make sure your bank account numbers."

And if you're counting on beating the clock and heading to the post office to file by mail, you want to make sure you don't wait too long.

The post office is closing at normal hours on Tuesday at 5 p.m.
