BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Tax Day is next week and the most recent data from the Internal Revenue Service shows millions of people still owe returns.
H&R block said there are a couple reasons people could be putting it off. The deadline was pushed back this year and officials said it may have confused some tax payers, not realizing they could still file at any time.
Some clients have told them they need tax help but are worried about COVID-19 safety. However, others said they haven't been able to get all the paperwork they need or have expressed being concerned about money they owe.
You can file to get an extension until October 15, if needed but you still need to estimate and pay your taxes by July 15.
