If you have been delaying on preparing your taxes, time is soon running out. The tax date for this year is April 18. That is one week from today.

If you plan on using snail-mail to file your taxes make sure the envelope has a post mark date stating April 18 or before so you wont be fined.

Filing electronically could be a safer avenue.

Keep all tax documents for 7 years incase of an IRS audit.
