Where to get last minute tax prep help

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — You may be one of the many procrastinators when it comes to filing your taxes and remember the deadline is midnight.

If you think you’ll need more time, you must file for an extension. Just go to the IRS website and fill out form 4868. It still needs to be postmarked by Monday. That will get you another six months.

But, if you owe money, you still need to pay the estimated tax by Monday as well.

If you file late, the penalty is five-percent per month on any unpaid taxes.

If you need help several libraries and community centers across the Mid-South are offering free tax help for a little while longer on a first come, first serve basis.
