Fall Filing

Today TaxMama hears from Pam in Texas who has lots of questions. “How many people file this late in the year? Can I still e-file my 2007 return. Will there be any red flag problems?”

Dear Pam,

Ohh…you want me to work, looking up statistics for you. Sigh. OK.

If I tell you that only 3 people file this late in the year, will that impact your decision to file your tax return?

What’s if I tell it’s 3 million people? OK, in fact last year, over 6.9 million people filed their tax returns after August 10th.

Of course you may still e-file your tax return. You have until October 15th of each year to e-file that year’s return. In fact, for years when October 15th lands on a weekend, you get until the next business day. Better yet, you will still get your rebate check – if you qualify.

And to answer your last question – will filing this late red-flag your return? Since your return will be among millions of procrastinators…filing before the deadline won’t attract any attention.

However, I haven’t a clue about what you put into your tax return. The contents of your return might red-flag it. But…that’s another question for another time.

And remember, you can find answers to all kinds of questions about red flags and filing deadlines and other tax issues, free. Where? Where else? At TaxMama.com
