The deadline to file your state taxes is Monday, and a spokesperson for the Iowa Department of Revenue says there are several thousand who’ll use up every minute allowed. The Department’s Renee Mulvey says there’s still time to get everything done on-line. She says if you haven’t filed your federal taxes, you should go to the state website and see how you can file the state and federal taxes together.
Mulvey says there are options available if you can’t afford to pay to e-file. Mulvey says it’s very important to double check your work before filing. Mulvey says many of the mistakes are very simple mistakes, such as forgetting to sign the return, adding wrong or putting amounts on the wrong line.
Mulvey says a mistake will delay the processing of your return and lead to more work all-around. Mulvey says your return is put in another pile where it is scrutinized more closely and then they have to ask you for more information and it increases the time it takes to process your return.
Mulvey says the people who owe money aren’t always the ones who wait until the last minute. Mulvey says they’ve already received a couple hundred thousand returns where people are sending in their money. For more information, check the Department of Revenue’s website at:www.state.ia.us/tax.
