Tax experts from the IRS and H&R Block stopped by the show to answer all of your tax questions. They cleared up any confusion on deductions, taxable income, benefits of e-filing, direct deposit, etc.
If you missed our free call-in phone bank, there's a free resource you can use online whenever you want. That's the IRS website: www.irs.gov.
Here are some tips you can use:
-Anyone can prepare and e-file their taxes for free with "IRS Free File." This is only available on www.irs.gov - if you made less than $57,000 you qualify to use the free tax software.
- Check to see if you're eligible for a $5,891 refund using the "EITC Assistant Tool." The Earned Income Tax Credit is for folks who have earned less than $50,712 in 2012.
- You can also use the "IRS Withholding Calculator" to make sure you don't have too much or too little income tax withheld from your pay.
Help from the IRS is also available on all platforms: Tumblr, Youtube, and Twitter. You can find links to their pages here and find more tax tips for 2013 here.
