Interesting Tax Tip

Interesting Tax TipWell, it looks like the IRS will get you coming and going. My cousin just informed me of a service fee she almost paid in addition to the taxes she owed the Internal Revenue Service this year.

She and her husband file their taxes via e-file, as do many other people. This is the third year they have owed taxes at the end of the year, but this year it was different.

When she went to pay the tax bill with her DEBIT card, it read that if you pay by CREDIT or DEBIT you will be charged a percentage of what you owe, in addition to the tax debt.

This could have cost my cousin nearly $100.00 in an extra service charge from the IRS.

The remedy? Simply mail them a check.

Good luck and don’t forget to file your taxes by April 15, 2014.
