The clock is ticking if you haven’t filed your state and federal income tax returns. But there’s still time.
April 15th is usually the day taxpayers must file their income tax forms by.
But since April 15th fell on a Sunday this year, and because of a Washington D.C. holiday (Emancipation Day) falls on April 16th, the Internal Revenue Service decided to make April 17th the deadline for this year.
Caleb Buhs is with the Michigan Treasury Department. He says most of the returns filed this year have received refunds.
“But normally that’s the way it goes early in the tax year," says Buhs, "(People) getting refunds file early…those who owe tend to wait til later in the tax season.”
Buhs says more than 80% of the state income tax returns filed so far this year have been filed electronically.
