Tax prep; tax deadline extended through mid-May
Wisconsin and Minnesota have extended their due dates to match the new federal date
LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – If you were falling behind on filing your taxes, Uncle Sam just gave you a little more time.
The federal tax date has been extended again.
This year people have until May 17 to get their taxes in.
State taxes are different, but Wisconsin and Minnesota have extended their due dates to match the new federal date.
Part of this is due to the latest federal relief package.
The bill retroactively changes some tax laws which could require more time to figure out.
If this seems confusing, experts say you are not alone.
“This season, like I mentioned is extremely complex. In fact, a study that we conducted has shown that there is over 56% more tax questions this year than in the past,” said Julie Sforza-Smith, a State Regulatory Affairs Manager with H&R Block.
Last year, the tax deadline was extended until July 15.
