VIRGINIA BEACH, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr. 8, 2019--
Liberty Tax, Inc. (OTC PINK: TAXA) said today that its offices
nationwide are ready to help taxpayers file to extend the deadline to
submit their 2018 taxes. A federal extension gives taxpayers an extra
six months to file their tax return – but still requires the payment of
any taxes owed by the April filing deadline.
With its tax extension assistance, Liberty Tax can help taxpayers
determine their tax liability, get the extra time they need to file, and
avoid a failure to file penalty. More than 14 million taxpayers filed
for a federal extension in 2018.
“We can help millions of taxpayers reduce their anxiety ahead of April 15th*,”
Liberty Tax CEO Nicole Ossenfort said. “At the same time, we’re here to
give them the professional guidance they need to understand their tax
liability, and work with them to accurately prepare and file their taxes
by their new deadline.”
Liberty Tax also reminds taxpayers that more than $1.4 billion in 2015
federal tax refunds remains unclaimed. Half of the refunds are for more
than $879 per taxpayer. These funds will be turned over to the U.S.
Treasury if taxpayers do not file a 2015 tax return by April 15th.
The professionals at Liberty Tax can also assist taxpayers filing past
years’ tax returns and claim these refunds.
Liberty Tax offices have extended hours in advance of April 15th,
to accommodate taxpayers who need assistance.
*Filing deadline is April 17 in Maine and Massachusetts.
