April 17 last day to file taxes

Watch out for tax scams ahead of April deadline

The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program, also known as VITA, is made up of trained volunteers who can help you get your taxes together and file them. It is further delayed due to the federal income tax filing date being pushed back by the Washington, D.C. "Emancipation Day" holiday.

The new survey conducted by H&R Block found that millennials, like many of us, could do with a bit of brushing up on how to handle the upcoming tax season. A tax return can take six to eight weeks to process if mailed.

The address to mail the paper tax return depends on the form and whether you're expecting a refund or are required to make a payment.

Most of the tax programs have an income threshold of around $60,000 to $66,000. That's about half the upper income limit of most of the other free tax-filing options. Interestingly, 12 percent more men than women.

Tax preparers should sign the tax returns they prepare and include their PTIN on the return.

Israeli Troops Allegedly Kill Palestinian At Gaza Border
Demonstrations at the border fence between the Palestinian enclave and Israel since late last month have lead to deadly clashes. Thursday's fatality increases the amount of Palestinians killed by Israeli firing on the previous two weeks to 33.

"Paying someone to do them for you can be a good way to relieve some headache, and according to the survey, a third of Millennials already know this", Meg Sutton, director with H&R Block, said in a statement.

Seven in ten millennials are anxious they'll file their taxes incorrectly, which makes sense given that only one in four are very confident they'd be able to file their taxes without any errors.

Volunteers will not be accepting appointments for tax help.

If you qualify to file Form 1040EZ, visit IRS.gov, TurboTax.intuit.com, HRBlock.com, JacksonHewitt.com or CreditKarma.com, all of which offer free online tax filing for the 1040EZ.
