Deadline Approaching To File Taxes

You may be in a tough spot, but you're in good company. "There's going to be this rush to get things in", said Krum. The IRS estimates that it takes 16 hours to complete your taxes. Note that you might have to pay interest on unpaid taxes.

If you've waited until the last minute to file your taxes, you're not alone. Under current tax thresholds, this family faces $21,000 in federal income tax and almost $5,000 in state income tax for a total combined effective income tax rate above 25 percent.

"So while filing for an extension is a simple process, filing your return by the original due date is advised". You only have until Tuesday at midnight to wrap everything up. If one half your annual Social Security benefits plus your other taxable income equals $25,000 or more, then those benefits will become partly taxable.

Overall, this year, the IRS expects to receive 13 million extension requests from tax-payers. And, for the top 1% of Americans, the effective federal tax rate is 33.4%, almost 10 times what those in the lowest quintile pay. Let's say our middle-class family spends $27,000 of its remaining $67,000 on housing and spends the remaining $40,000. Last year, said the IRS, an estimated 6.5 million tax filers paid a fine that averaged $470.
