Brad's Beat: Last Day to File 2013 Tax Returns
By Brad Douglas
JOPLIN, MO.--- If you're a procrastinator, today is a day you have probably been dredding. Today is the last day to file your 2013 tax returns. More than a hundred people visited the Northpark Mall to get some free tax help. The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance group, or VITA, has been setup in the mall since January. On average, they do about 75 returns a day for free. Today, that number doubled. They often hear many excuses why people wait until the last minute.
"You just keep putting it off until you're wife makes you," said John Lacey, Waited Until April 15th.
If you filed an extension, you have six months to file your new return.
