The tax countdown clock (there in the right-hand column) is going through its final clicks. How about you? What are you up to today?
If you're still working on your 1040, let me refer you to a couple of pieces I put together this tax season, both here on the ol' blog and for other publications:
- Common tax-filing mistakes
- Overlooked tax breaks
- Payment options
- Homeowner tax write-offs
- Basis issues
- Retirement plan deadlines, part 1 and redux
Remember that you have to file a 1040 before the IRS will send you your stimulus package rebate.
And if you didn't file a 2004 return, you might be due a refund from that year. More in this post.
