If you are a volunteer firefighter, or emergency personnel, you will get a tax credit of $250 on next year’s taxes. That’s not this tax season, but the next one.
That was one of the tidbits to come out of an interview with Deb Swanson, who runs H & R Block in Tecumseh.
The filing season opened Jan. 23 and it will close April 18, on a Tuesday. The regular Monday deadline was moved to Tuesday for Emancipation Day, celebrated April 17 in Washington, D.C.
There is something new to the tax season this year. Refunds will be delayed until as late as Feb. 27 because of PATH (Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes) Act. This Act requires the IRS to hold refunds for Earned Income Tax Credit and Additional Child Tax Credit.
