Tax Tips

It won't be long before tax filing season is here.

Lots of tax filing offices look empty now, but at H&R Block in Nacogdoches employees have already started filing taxes for people.

Your W-2 forms are supposed to be mailed out by your employers by the end of January. Tax preparers say make sure you have all of your documents in order before you file.

This year, you will see one big change when it comes to filing.

Bobby Horton, of H&R Block said, "Because we do not have a state tax now when people itemize their deductions they can now have the deduction for the sales tax that they pay."

To get people to file sooner, H&R Block has a contest going. If you file soon you could have a chance to double your refund.
