Don't procrastinate on taxes!

Posted: Updated:
MONTGOMERY, Ala. -

The Internal Revenue Service estimates 440,000 Alabamians will wait until April to file their tax returns.

IRS spokesman Dan Boone says people waiting until close to the April 15 deadline should not miss out on earned income tax credits. He said many lower-income workers can qualify. Some workers who couldn't qualify in previous years may now qualify because of a change in marital status or addition of a child. A person who worked some part of 2012 and had a household income below $50,270 may qualify.

Boone said there are many IRS-certified volunteers who will prepare and file tax returns for free. The IRS has a toll free number (1-800-906-9887) where callers can see if they qualify for free help and find a location.
