Survey finds millennials are nervous as Tax Day approaches
JEFFERSON CITY —
Americans everywhere prepared for Tuesday's Tax Day.
Tax Day was the deadline for filing your 2017 federal tax return, the last day to make a contribution to an individual retirement account for it to count against 2017 income, the deadline to file a tax extension, and the day when quarterly estimated tax payments are due for those who make them.
Tax Day is usually April 15, but was scheduled for the 17th due to the weekend and Emancipation Day, a holiday celebrated in Washington D.C.
A new survey conducted by H&R Block and United Way Worldwide found 66 percent of millennials were unaware the deadline was the 17th. The survey also found 74% of 1,000 millennial respondents were stressed about filing their taxes. 48 percent were worried they would make a mistake and 23 percent worried they wouldn't get the full refund.
H&R Block and the United Way teamed up to provide a resource to help Americans file federal and state taxes. MyFreeTaxes is completely free for households that earned less than $66,000 in 2017. To learn more about MyFreeTaxes head to the website.
