Bronx residents face deadline for federal income tax returns
The deadline for New Yorkers who have not yet filed their 2004 federal income tax returns is Monday.
The Internal Revenue Service is reminding those who received an additional extension in August to file so they can avoid a 5 percent-per-month late filing penalty. The IRS estimates that nearly 214,000 residents face this deadline.
Usually, the deadline is October 15, but since that date fell on a Saturday there was a two day extension. President Bush says victims of Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Rita will have until February to file their tax returns.Related Links:Tax DeadlineInternal Revenue Service e-file Free File Electronic Payment Options Filing Late and/or Paying Late
