Tax preparers busy as tax deadline nears


Eau Claire (WQOW) - If you haven't filed your taxes yet, you have just a few hours to do so.

Last-minute filers are busy working on taxes, and so are tax preparers. Action tax in Eau Claire says the phone has been ringing off the hook today with people who have questions and those who are looking for tax help.  This year has been especially difficult, because the fiscal cliff pushed back the release of several tax forms, shortening the preparation time for them.

"Some years everything goes smoothly, this was not one of those years, with the late filing status, some forms, there are still some forms that are still not available with the IRS, it's just not been a fun season," says Lori Peabody, owner of Action Tax Service.

The tax deadline to file electronically is midnight Monday night. If you're filing through the mail, make sure to double-check when your post office closes.
