Houston, TX (PRWEB) October 9, 2007
The IRS tax filing deadline is October 15, 2007. Taxpayers who still need to file their tax return with the IRS should prepare and file their taxes online at http://www.you-file.com.
Christmas shopping and filing taxes have one thing in common and that is many people wait until the last minute to do it. While Christmas is still a few months away, the last day to file a tax return with the IRS for the 2006 tax year is just days away.
There is still plenty of time to procrastinate buying a loved one a Christmas gift, but the finals days to procrastinate in filing a tax return with the IRS have now arrived. If you miss buying a gift for a loved one at Christmas, there may be some temporary family strife, but missing the final IRS tax filing deadline may lead to many taxpayers opening up a collection letter from the IRS some time next year.
While everyone knows that the date for Christmas is December 25, most people are not aware that the date for the IRS tax filing deadline is October 15, 2007. Jeff Welch who operates the tax related website http://www.you-file.com is offering last minute tax filers a reliable place to go to prepare taxes and files taxes before the IRS tax filing deadline passes.
The You-file website is an affiliate tax partner with the industry leading tax software TurboTax Online which offers tax filers the online version of the TurboTax software. Welch says that last minute tax filers can go to the You-file website and easily use TurboTax Online to prepare and file their taxes. The TurboTax Online program allows web users the one stop convenience of preparing and filing taxes and thus the ability to meet the October 15, 2007 IRS tax filing deadline. Welch describes TurboTax Online as the best tax software in the marketplace because it is easy to use for people who do not know anything about preparing taxes or filing taxes.
TurboTax Online uses an interview style format which asks people simple questions that help them prepare their tax returns. Taxpayers answer the simple questions and the TurboTax Online program completes the tax return for them. The TurboTax Online program also allows taxpayers the ease and convenience of filing their tax return electronically with the IRS after they have prepared it using the tax software program.
Welch points out that the TurboTax Online program gives taxpayers a confirmation receipt that their tax return has been successfully filed with the IRS. Welch says that once the taxpayer has completed their tax return using TurboTax Online, they can hit the submit button and send their tax return directly to the IRS over the internet through the TurboTax Online electronic filing feature of the program.
Welch says that taxpayers who do not file a tax return with the IRS will find themselves in a non compliance status with the IRS which often leads to IRS collection activity including the IRS placing a levy on a person's wages or bank account. The You-file website is focused on helping people file their taxes and solving IRS problems.
Welch encourages people who have not filed taxes in years to go ahead and file a tax return for this year so they can break the cycle of not filing taxes. Welch can help non filers get back into tax compliance with the IRS for the other years that have not been filed yet. Welch says that the IRS can file a substitute tax return for people who do not file a tax return on their own.
The substitute tax return that the IRS files for non filers does not include tax saving items and almost always leads to the taxpayer owing the IRS more money than would normally be the case if they would have just filed a tax return on their own. Welch says that "the first big step in getting back into tax filing compliance with the IRS is to file a tax return for the current year and then to go back and get compliant for the other years."
Opening up a stinky bottle of cheap cologne from a late arriving Christmas present beats the smell of opening up an IRS collection letter for not filing a tax return, so note that Christmas is December 25, 2007 and the last day to file a tax return for this year is October 15, 2007.
