Since I am a registered E-Filer for income tax returns, I receive updates on E-Filer news.
Today I received an email stating that the deadline for E-Filing returns for the 2012 tax year has been extended from November 30th, 2013 until January 17th, 2014.
For people who file late, this is a really good change. The processing speed for returns that are E-Filed is really quick. Typically refunds are back in the taxpayers hands in about two weeks. Returns that are mailed in can take up to two months to be processed.
It also means much less paper that needs to be printed, which is good for the environment!
If you havn't filed your return yet, it's not too late! You can go back and file any returns up to 10 years ago that have not yet been filed.
