Last chance to claim a 2013 refund
According to the IRS, nearly one million taxpayers who failed to file a return for 2013 are in danger of losing refunds. Tax law provides a three-year period to claim a refund when no return is filed. That means you'll have to file a tax return for 2013 no later than this year's April tax deadline – April 18 – or the chance to claim the refund is gone for good.

Can't finish your federal income tax return by the April 18 deadline? There's still time to get an automatic six-month extension.
There are four ways to obtain an extension:
1. File a paper copy of Form 4868 with the IRS and enclose your payment of estimated tax due.
2. File for an extension electronically using the IRS e-file system on your computer.
3. Using IRS Direct Pay, you can pay all or part of your estimated income tax due and indicate the payment is for an extension.
4. Have your tax preparer e-file for an extension on your behalf.
Remember that even if you file for an extension, you are still required to pay any taxes you owe by the April 18 filing deadline.
Special extension rules apply to members of the military serving in combat zones and to certain others who live outside the U.S. Give us a call so we can discuss whether or not an extension is right for your situation.
