April 15th Tax Deadline is Coming

Posted: Updated:

The April 15th tax filing deadline is just over two weeks away.

We spoke with tax pros on Sunday, who had some last minute tax tips.

Tammy Dreyer has been a tax pro at H&R Block, for 10 years; she said April is her busiest month.

"I think some people just like the thrill of waiting until the last minute," said Dreyer.  "The last month before taxes is pretty crazy, so I'd say starting this week we're going to be getting very busy."

Tammy said one thing that delays the process even further, is forgetting documentation.

Remember to bring W2 forms, any unemployment documents, interest, social security cards of any dependents, and for retirees, 1099-R forms.

Monday is your last day to sign up for Obamacare.  Dreyer said say if you're not signed up for the Affordable Care Act, you could face a penalty.

"Next year, there's going to be a penalty on tax returns if you don't have the health insurance.  Based on your income and how many people are on your return is how the penalty is going to be figured out."

The minimum penalty is $95.  You can also be penalized if you claim dependents that aren't covered.
