October 15th Tax Deadline - YouTube video text script

HI… I’M MARIA AND I WORK FOR THE INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE.      

DID YOU REQUEST AN EXTENSION OF TIME TO FILE YOUR TAX RETURN?      

IF SO... THE DEADLINE IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER ON OCTOBER 15TH.           

NOW WHEN YOU FILE YOUR RETURN… DON’T FORGET TO CHECK IF YOU QUALIFY FOR SOME COMMON CREDITS AND DEDUCTIONS.       

THERE ARE SPECIAL TAX BENEFITS FOR LOW-AND MODERATE-INCOME FAMILIES AS WELL AS SMALL BUSINESSES.        

IN ADDITION… YOU COULD BE ELIGIBLE FOR A CREDIT IF YOU PAID FOR COLLEGE TUITION OR FEES… OR IF YOU MADE YOUR HOME ENERGY EFFICIENT.            

FILING ELECTRONICALLY WILL MAKE IT EASY TO CLAIM THESE AND OTHER CREDITS.      

WHEN YOU E-FILE... YOU ALSO GET HELPFUL GUIDES AND TIPS TO LEAD YOU TO A CORRECT AND COMPLETE RETURN.        

REMEMBER...E-FILE IS THE FASTEST...EASIEST AND MOST ACCURATE WAY TO FILE YOUR TAX RETURN.

YOU CAN E-FILE FOR FREE BY GOING TO W-W-W-DOT-I-RS-DOT-GOV-SLASH FREE FILE.       

OR YOU CAN USE TAX PREPARATION SOFTWARE.     

YOU CAN ALSO ASK YOUR TAX PROFESSIONAL TO USE E-FILE.      

AND REMEMBER... IF YOU’RE GETTING A REFUND… YOU’LL GET IT FASTER IF YOU CHOOSE DIRECT DEPOSIT.
