Tax season 2016 ends Monday

(WSPA) – The deadline to file your tax return or request an extension is Monday.

Paperwork must be submitted by April 18th to avoid penalty.

The deadline normally falls on April 15th, but a new legal holiday in Washington pushed it back.

While it’s getting late, it’s still not too late to have them filed correctly.

Tax attorney Eric Green says first and foremost make sure all your information is there.

Also, find out what changes there have been in tax laws that may impact you.

Have proof of what you claim in charitable donations.  If you don’t have it, go back to the organization and get those receipts.

Remember to carefully choose a preparer and review everything to make sure it’s right before you submit.

If you’re filing at home, experts recommend downloading anti-virus software to prevent any identity theft.
