What do you get when you combine number crunching, paperwork, and stress? Tax Season. It's a time folks love to hate. "You never know what you're going to get back or what you owe. It can be scary," said Anita Smith.
If that describes you, there's good news: Tax advisors say you're not going to jail. "People have two options," explains Jerry Stepenoff of H&R Block. "You can fill out a form 4868 which gives them an extension but doesn't reduce their taxes. The best advice is to mail in what you can. You can also fill out a 9456 and basically it's an installment agreement."
