Our friends at Liberty Tax Service have sent us a reminder that the deadline for filing a tax return to get a refund that might be due is April 19th this year as the IRS has extended the filing deadline from April 15 because of Emancipation Day.

According to Edwin Garey of Liberty Tax Service the IRS has estimated that almost $1 billion in tax refunds from 2012 will disappear on the deadline date of April 19th.

“If you have not filed your 2012 federal or state tax return, you can come in from April 1 through April 10and get 50 percent off tax preparation of your 2012 return,” says Garey.

Garey advises that anyone who needs to file can stop by Liberty Tax Service at 6509 South Transit Rd., Lockport, or call 650-4076 and speak to Garey about filing an extension, Michael Gawel for business returns, or Gregory Gerstung for individual returns.  There is also a person on staff for Spanish-speaking customers.

Individuals who meet income requirements must file an income tax return.  You are also required to file if you had unearned income over $1,050 including gambling winnings or earnings from self-employment of over $400.

You may also be required to file if you received advance payments of the premium tax credit.  Anyone seeking earned income credit, child tax credit, American opportunities credit or the new health care tax credits should also file.

Now through April 15, you can call Liberty Tax Service at 1-866-871-1040 for the nearest location or visit online at for a free consultation or review of your prior returns.
