October 15th Extension Deadline is Fast Approaching

We would like to give our website visitors another friendly reminder about the tax-filing and payment extension deadline of Wednesday, October 15th - it is fast approaching!

The IRS is urging tax payers who have filed an extension to double-check their returns for often-overlooked tax benefits and then file electronically using the IRS' e-file of Free File system. IRS e-file is available through October 15th. 

According to the IRS, 13 million taxpayers requested an automatic 6 month extension, and more than a quarter of those taxpayers still have yet to file. 

Members of the military and others serving our country overseas typically have at least 180 days after they leave the combat zone to both file returns and pay any taxes they have due. 

Some of those often overlooked and under-utilized tax benefits the IRS is encouraging taxpayers to look over before filing on the 15th are:
  • Earned Income Tax Credit
  • American Opportunity Tax Credit
  • Benefits for same-sex couples that were legally married in jurisdictions that recnognize their marriage

And as always, if you have any questions about the filing and payment extension of October 15th, please contact us at Bloch, Rothman & Associates LTD in Denver, Colorado at (303) 321.7160.
