TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WAWV/WTWO) – The community can expect appointments with tax preparation services to fill rather quickly as the deadline to file is April 18th.

Local tax service experts said this year clients are a bit confused on the tax process, after changes and extensions from the past two years.

Stadler Tax Services Regional Manager Lori Carpenter said many people have waited to file their taxes.

“It seems like the first of April hit this year and all the people we hadn’t heard from yet are all calling in need of an appointment,” Carpenter said.

Terre Haute resident Joseph Megalli said he filed later than normal this year… 

“I just did mine a week ago and that’s usually kinda late for me,” Megalli said.

Carpenter said it’s important that clients arrive to appointments with the correct files.

“You need all of your income documents, often times they come in a little envelope that says tax documents inside,” Carpenter said.

Those with businesses or aim to itemize have to bring additional documentation.

“If they have a small business they would want to make sure they bring their receipts and documentation of their income, Carpenter said. “If they want to itemize they would need to bring their medical forms as well as their charitable contributions.”

If you haven’t filed you can still file an extension for mid October. Carpenter said it’s better to have filed accurately than rush.

“Take your time over the summer to make sure that everything is filed correctly the first time,” Carpenter said. 

Again the deadline to file 2022 taxes is April 18th.
