We are close to the tax deadline and officials say don't wait, get your taxes filed now!

Taxes must be mailed by Tuesday, April 17th.

You can either file your taxes online, mail them yourself, get an accountant to do it, or file an extension.

No matter what you do, you only have today and tomorrow to get it done.

Annette Holman, owner of Liberty Tax Service, says "If you can not pay your return yet, you still want to definitely get it filed because the penalties for not filing your return are 5 percent a month but at least if you file, even if you can't pay yet, the penalty goes down to a half a percent."
