Do you have all your tax information ready to go, but are procrastinating? STOP IT! Here’s why the early bird gets the tax refund this year ….
If you’re expecting a return, this is the year to get it in as early as possible – as the IRS is expecting big delays in processing them due to Congress filing new tax laws at the eleventh hour. (You can read more about that in this HuffingtonPost article) Since it’s first come, first serve – getting your tax return in early via e-Filing is one of the best ways to make sure it arrives without delay.
One useful tip from the IRS: For the speediest refund, you should e-file (80% of taxpayers did last year) and include direct deposit information so your refund magically appears in your bank account … and you’re not stuck waiting for the IRS to play catch-up with Congress. – HuffingtonPost
