Tax day is Tuesday, April 17, tax preparations offices will be standing by tomorrow waiting for millions of Americans who still haven't filed yet.

If you still need to file and are preparing to see a tax consultant tomorrow, be sure to take your photo ID, social security card and tax documents including your W-2 and 1099.

Tax experts say if you miss the deadline it could leave you with a large fine. 

"If you don't file tomorrow and you don't have an extension and you owe tax the IRS will charge you 5% for failure to pay per month or up to 25%," Graves said.
