Every year we have to deal with taxes; whether we have our own business or if you hold a job. Even at times when you do not have a job you still have to deal with it. We have seen celebrities on the news who tried to save money and not pay their taxes; the IRS will get you. Do not even attempt to screw the IRS, you will just have more problems than you can handle. Income tax can be easy; there are ways to get your hands on free tax forms.
There are two tax forms that you would want to fill out; the one for the IRS and the one for the Department of Revenue of the state that you live in. For the IRS, you can go to their website and get free tax forms. If you are having a hard time with that, you can call their customer service and ask them for a copy of the free tax form. Make sure that it is the right form to correctly file your income tax.
For the State, you have to call the Department of Revenue of the state that you live in for information on how to get the tax form or just go to their website. Again, the tax forms are free. Do not fall for people who scam you and say that they are from the IRS and you can pay them to get your free tax forms filled up by them. The IRS does not do this.
Free tax forms usually get sent in on the mail. But sometimes things happen and your mail got lost or you have moved to another apartment or maybe your dog just chewed up your mail. The thing is, you know what you have to do, and you must have the initiative to settle your taxes. If and when you think you cannot pay on time, make sure to call the IRS or the State and make arrangements with them. Appeal your case with them and see if you can extend your deadline. The important thing is to communicate with them.
If you do not have any idea what to do, just go to the internet and search for how-to guidelines on filing for income tax. Not only will you find free tax forms, you will also find suggestions and advice on how to do filing of income tax properly.
