 Deadline for filing your taxes is April 15th, and this deadline is fast approaching.

 When a taxpayer is placed onto federal form 4868 allowing to extend the time to file, does NOT extend the time to pay.

There is 5% penalty of failure pay if taxes are not paid by April 15th and a 20% failure to file a return by the due date including extensions.

These penalties add up quickly since if your tax return is not placed onto extension and files after April 15th then there will be (if you owe taxes) a 20% penalty on top of the failure to pay penalty of 5%, if this does not get your attention then think of this, 20% + 5% + interest (yes interest starts to calculate) on top of the penalties.  Oregon Department of Revenue can impose and will impose a 100% penalty if taxes are not filed and paid within in a narrowing time period.

With the high increase of identity theft, it is important to hav someone who takes your confidential records seriously.  We request proof of identification before we will discuss any tax issues related to your individual situation.

ATTENTION TO ALL TAXPAYER'S

The IRS will never call you to state they are going to sue a taxpayer for unpaid balances, nor will they ever send out information to you the taxpayer via email. Do not be fooled. If you have received any calls or email and have provided certain information through a telemarketing survey. Remember, thieves can gain access to you information on Social Networks.  These thieves are getting smarter and are piercing the veil of security.  Report these transactions to local police department, as well as the Internal Revenue Service, the Eugene Police Department as well as the IRS do take these reports seriously.

Vital information can be your tax records as well as banking, and credit card data. one should NEVER give out their birthdate, use social media to access your financial records.
