IRS "Direct Pay" option not working on Tax Day

IRS

It's not news that crooks use stolen Social Security numbers and other information to file phony tax returns in others' names and claim a refund for themselves.

Even if you can't pay, you could work out a payment plan with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

"Make sure you have the right postage on there", said barber, "make sure it's weighed".

Tax day is Tuesday and for many who haven't filed an extension, it's crunch time. They will then be automatically be granted the six-month filing extension.

A value of 50-75 would indicate a very strong trend, and a value of 75-100 would signify an extremely strong trend. Historical statistical volatility is a measure of how much the stock price fluctuated during a given time period.

Another tax-related scam occurs when someone pretending to work for the IRS calls and threatens you with jail time, arrest or fines if you don't pay your "tax debts". It's also the deadline for business owners and freelancers to pay their estimated taxes for the first quarter of 2018.

Tepper said the best thing to do if you wait until Tuesday is to file for an extension with the IRS.

If you're waiting until the absolute last moment to file your taxes, Houser says you're not alone as they are helping almost two hundred clients today. Taxpayers should continue filing their tax returns as they normally would. The IRS expects 155 million filings this year, and 119 million had come in at the end last week, Kautter said. If you request and are granted an extension, you'll have until October 15th. The IRS has an online calculator to help you estimate your payment. Last year, 5 million taxpayers filed returns on the deadline day. "Taxpayers would not be penalized because of a technical problem the IRS is having".

Meaning, use your tax return as a learning experience and always be on the look out for thieves posing as the IRS who pressure you into sending them money. Just get those late returns in as soon as possible. In that case, the deadline will be extended until June 15, according to Kurlowicz. This form can be downloaded from IRS.gov/forms and should be mailed to the IRS along with a tax return, IRS bill or notice. They are secure and easy and taxpayers receive immediate confirmation when they submit their payment.
