Taxing Cinema: The IRS Goes to Hollywood

The untouchablesEvery year, tax season inspires Americans...to gripe, complain, and cross their fingers and pray that they avoid an audit. But rather than focus on the depressing side of your yearly ordeal, why not consider the more enjoyable things that taxes have inspired -- namely, a long list of films. Whether a hapless civil servant, a slick government functionary or a faceless boogeyman who kicks old ladies out of their home, the taxman is usually good for a laugh, a groan, or a scream of abject terror. And, with the Oscars coming this weekend, there's no better time to take a peek at these taxing classics.

5 Hidden Ways to Boost Your Tax Refund

Most of us are looking for ways to pay no more than we owe in taxes, or even boost our tax refunds. Here are five strategies that go beyond the obvious with tried-and-true ways to reduce your tax liability.

What, Me Worry? Last Minute Taxes

According to the Internal Revenue Service, 20-25% of all Americans wait until the last two weeks before the deadline to prepare their tax returns. At that late date, there are only two things you can do: File your taxes pronto, or request a tax extension.

Can't File by the Deadline? Top 3 Reasons to File a Tax Extension

The Internal Revenue Service allows taxpayers to file for a 6-month extension if they need more time to prepare their tax return. You can obtain a tax extension for any reason; the IRS grants them automatically as long as you complete the proper form on time. Check your state tax laws; some states accept IRS extensions while others require you to file a separate state extension form.
