Time running out for last-minute BK tax filers

Tax day has arrived and Brooklyn residents have until midnight Tuesday to file taxes. One option for last-minute filers is to file taxes electronically. Officials from the Internal Revenue Service say e-filing is fast, accurate and easy. The program checks for errors and missing information. Those making less than $54,000 a year may even qualify for free filing. For those who want to file the old-fashioned way, the IRS recommends that you check your local post office for hours of operation as some may be open late. For those who cannot make the deadline, there is still time to file for an extension. Just submit a 4868 form online or through the mail by Tuesday night?s deadline. IRS Last-Minute Reminders
