The e-file deadline date was October 15th, 2013 for 2013 tax returns, but you can still prepare your return with RapidTax
You can’t e-file after the October 15 deadline, but you can prepare your 2013 taxes with RapidTax. Once completed, you’ll print, sign and mail your taxes to the IRS.
The first tax deadline for 2013 taxes was April 15, 2014. Those who requested an extension, had until October 15, 2014 to file.
As of, October 15th the IRS has shut down the e-file system. Although you can no longer e-file, you can still prepare and file your 2013 taxes.
File your Late 2013 Taxes ASAP!
If you still need to file a 2013 tax return, you’ll want to do so as soon as possible. Why? If you have tax due, filing late means paying penalties. The longer you wait to file, the more you’ll end up handing over to the IRS. Late fees include;
- failure-to-file penalty: 5% of the additional taxes owed amount for every month (or fraction) your return is late, with a maximum penalty of 25%
- failure-to-pay penalty: 0.5% (1/2 of 1%) of the additional tax owed amount for every month (or fraction) your tax remains unpaid, up to a maximum of 25%
At the very least, file your late tax return. If you have trouble paying your tax due, the IRS is willing to work with you.
If you’re expecting a refund from your 2013 taxes, you won’t face any penalties but you’ll still want to file sooner rather than later. In fact, after April 15, 2017, you’ll no longer be able to claim your 2013 refund.
Don’t procrastinate! File today and put taxes out of your mind until the 2015 tax season!
