ROCHESTER, NY (WROC) — People across the country are ready to file their income with the IRS.
If you are a procrastinator you can ask for an extension. But, if you want to get in under the wire, there is still hope and it comes in the form of C.A.S.H. Not “cash money” but a non-profit community coalition that offers free tax services to those in need.
C.A.S.H. is under Vita, an IRS program that helps people secure the credits they deserve, especially income tax credits and that is a lot of people.
“Today is our Super Bowl,” said Brita Rivera, director of C.A.S.H. “It’s a little bit busier than normal because it is the first time in four years that the deadline is actually on the 15th and not the 17th or the 18th so people are kind of cramming in last-minute filers to get their taxes done.”
There are hundreds of Vita centers across the country, including Rochester. They have been operating for 15 years in Monroe County.
If you need an extension, you can visit the IRS website and fill out form 4868. You can do this until midnight, but remember, you will have to fill out separate forms to extend your state taxes.
