Tax Deadline Fast Approaching

by Jessica Cervantez

Friday, April 15th is a dreaded day for many.

H&R Block Office Manager Bobby Horton said their Nacogdoches office has been pretty slow until just recently, so they don't know what to expect in the next few days.

But, Horton said if you plan to file an extension there are some things you need to remember.

Horton said, "If you file that extension and don't send the money knowing good and well you owe money, then when you do file your interest and penalties start accruing from the 15th. Remember it's an extension to file not an extension to pay."

There is some last minute free tax help available. You can go to the Garrison Federal building located at 701 North First Street from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. You can also go to Kurth Memorial Library on 706 South Raguet from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Friday, April 15th.

The Lufkin post office will be extending their hours on tax day until 8:00 p.m. All mail received until eight will have the April 15th postmark.
