Today's Tax Day, The Top Day of the Year for Robocalls, & Some Freebies

Today is Tax Day, and a new study found it's the top day of the year for ROBOCALLS. Scammers like today because everyone's on edge and not sure they did their taxes perfectly, so we're a little more susceptible to someone posing as the IRS asking for money or personal info.

Remember, the IRS will never call you and demand immediate payments: especially in the form of gift cards and wire transfers. If you think you may owe but are unsure of the call, call the IRS at 800-829-1040.

For last-minute filing, here's a coupe of tips:

Getting an Extension -- If you need more time, you can file for a six-month extension to avoid paying penalties for getting your return in late. However, if you owe money, it needs to be paid on time, even if you get an extension to file your return, or you'll have to pay a penalty and interest.

Paper Returns Postmarked By Midnight -- Most taxpayers file online now, but if you're still using paper returns, they need to be postmarked by midnight.

Meanwhile, some places are offering discounts in honor of the day.
