April 15, 2014 is the IRS tax filing deadline. If you haven’t filed your tax yet, here are some suggestions to get started:
Every year, individuals often get confused by the complicated process in filing tax and handling tax forms. The easiest and fastest way for residents who made an annual income below $58,000 is to file their tax electronically through e-file on the IRS website, which is free of charges, said the IRS.
Not only that, individuals who made an annual income below $52,000 can get free tax help in the bay area by calling 211, and there are IRS trained volunteers who will file your taxes electronically free of charges.
Individuals who bear difficulties in reading English can visit the IRS website for the Publication 850 form, which provides an English-Chinese glossary of words and phrases in the tax forms.
Also, starting from January 2013, individuals who made an annual income over $200,000 are required to file a net investment tax and an additional Medicare tax.
Lastly, for individuals who are not able to file tax on or before the deadline April 15 will grant a 6-month extension automatically.
